Really Enjoy Christmas This Year

The economy has tanked and we’ve elected a Democratic President, but things could be worse (just a joke, folks). I love Christmas and it’s one week away from my posting this little blog. I wanted to pass along some tips for making Christmas interesting this year. You may already do these things, and I don’t do all of them, but they’re worth trying for the fun of it…

  1. Read the Christmas story on Christmas morning with your family – Luke 2:1-20.
  2. Bake a “birthday cake” for Jesus.
  3. Try boiled custard – it’s a Kentucky favorite!
  4. Don’t drink and drive. Don’t drink at all. Remember Christmas this year.
  5. Give a small gift to someone you don’t know.
  6. Let your kids see, in some visual and personal manner, what poverty looks like.
  7. Go to the Mall on a crowded day – it’s part of the season.
  8. Wear PJ’s all day… don’t shower or shave. Hey, it’s Christmas! (warning: your family may object)
  9. Overeat just a bit, enjoy the feast. It’s a celebration!
  10. Pray for men and women in military service.
  11. Put some cocoa puffs on the lawn – tell the kids its reindeer poop.
  12. Watch “the Santa Claus” on Christmas eve and put an empty Santa suit on the lawn – wake the kids up early.
  13. Don’t “shoot your eye out.” If you shoot yourself in the eye, work up some tears and blame it on an imaginary icecicle.
