The Christmas season looks a little different at the Maker Mama house. Turned off by the hustle and bustle of it all (and all the focus on shopping), I’ve spent the last few years slowing our Christmas down. One of the best ways I’ve found is by doing activities together as a family that keep our focus on the real reason we celebrate Christmas as Catholics. We decorate slowly, not lighting our tree until Christmas Eve, and hanging our trimmings up gradually. We also celebrate St. Nicholas Day instead of Santa Claus. We bake a birthday cake to celebrate Jesus’ birthday. They may be little things, but they’re different enough that they hold our attention.
