As we get older, the Christmas spirit lessens . So much so, that in some cases the magic of Christmas is completely lost. On these dates when we take the opportunity to celebrate as a family and be with our own, many of us feel a little frustrated and down because we see parties in which we should enjoy, our mood is the opposite.
Recovering the magic of Christmas is an obligatory task when there are children at home , so we have to make a great effort so that our children feel the beauty of these holidays and the only way we can achieve it is by transmitting it to them with enthusiasm and enthusiasm. .
HOW TO RECOVER THE MAGIC OF CHRISTMAS WHEN THERE ARE CHILDREN?
Recovering the Christmas spirit when we are alone in another city that is not ours and we are away from our family or when we have lost a loved one, it is very difficult since for us Christmas is a holiday that is celebrated as a family , but when the children appear, everything changes. Recovering the illusion is much easier than it seems, as long as we are willing to do it.
The first step, and more important, is the desire that we make him get excited again . To do this, it is best to soak up the Christmas spirit and the easiest way is to decorate our Christmas house . We will start by assembling a tree with balls and garlands, we will add lights on the balcony, all this with the help of the children who will flood us with their illusion and innocence and will make our Christmas days something different.
Writing the letter to the Three Wise Men or Santa Claus with our children will make us go back to our childhood and remember our Christmas as children surrounded by family, which will get us to soak up a little more in the magic and illusion of these dates.
On the other hand, try to do your best with gifts for your relatives , especially for children. It is not about buying the most expensive gifts , but rather those that will make your loved ones most excited. Seeing the happy face that they will put on when you receive them and when you open them can be the best reward and will make you feel like living those special and magical moments surrounded by those people you love the most.
ENJOY WITH FAMILY
Enjoy family days . How about you get back those afternoon plans as a family doing a thousand things together? We are in a time when watching a movie , spending the afternoon playing board games while you remember anecdotes from the past while you delight yourself with the typical polvorones, Christmas chocolates. This is a plan that can make us forget our current life and transport ourselves to our happiest, most innocent past, the one we lived with hope.
Another plan that can help you regain the magic of Christmas when there are children at home, and one of the children’s favorite activities is to go for a walk around the city discovering the lights that adorn the streets. Take advantage of any day off or on vacation to go with the children to see different nativity scenes, so you can feel much more bond with your children, at the same time that you will teach them how things have changed from your childhood until now. There is nothing more gratifying and that brings greater happiness to children than feeling identified with their parents, knowing that there was a day when they too were young and felt the same illusion, magic and happiness that they did during Christmas.
Putting unhappiness, frustrations, stress aside and letting yourself be carried away by the Christmas spirit, illusion and magic, is a very rewarding activity that will change our way of seeing Christmas as adults and we will feel like children again. that we were in the past.
