As much as the advent season is a time of waiting and contemplation, with young children you can’t help but be drawn towards the celebratory side of Jesus’ birth.
The angels sing. Mary sings. The shepherds sing. Such a joy-filled time of song and wonder, joy and excitement can open a door into our children’s hearts, allowing us to guide them into thinking about the deeper meanings of Christ’s first coming.
Because what child doesn’t love and understand the concept of a birthday party? The waiting for the big day. The gifts (also awaited!). The central figure (birthday boy or girl!). The song of celebration, along with feasting (cake!), and enjoyment.
Create an advent birthday party for Jesus as a way to keep Christ at the center of your Christmas, while celebrating His birth.

I hope you and your family celebrate with much joy this Christmas!
