My Christmas includes “Do they know it’s Christmas” by Band-Aid. Cannot imagine the holidays without it. Reminds me (and we don’t celebrate Christmas) that the holiday is about thinking of others first. It is better to give than receive!
And a trip to the local fire station with my boys to drop off new toys that they have set aside from their birthdays to give to those who do not have and cannot afford.
It’s VERY important that my kids understand during the holiday season that it is indeed better to give than receive.
Urbanmummy started this tradition of the kids giving their toys to charity, the 4th year for the boys. She continues to instill the true meaning of charity into our household.
