  • When my son was young, I tried to make sure he had as many “Jesus encounters” as Santa ones. Which was challenging, since lots of strangers mentioned Santa to him.

    One way I tried to keep balance was to relate everyday Christmas activities to the birth of Jesus. Tree lights for the star of Bethlehem, gifts because Jesus is a gift, and the white tree skirt (a tablecloth) for swaddling clothes. At age 19, he still remembers those things.

    We also made “birthday” cupcakes for Jesus, having fun decorating 24 different ways. Before each cupcake was eaten, we lit a birthday candle and sang “Happy Birthday” to Jesus. 24 reminders!
