Présentation de l'éditeur
Have you ever wondered how Christmas carols became popular...or indeed the Christmas tree? Christmas Ideas will tell you.
The Christmas season is about celebrating joy with family, spending time together, giving gifts and creating memories and traditions that will last for a lifetime and be passed down for generations to follow. Unfortunately, in today’s world Christmas has become synonymous with only the materialistic aspect of gift giving and food.
Christmas Ideas supports and celebrates the true values of Christmas. It is filled with Christmas ideas and highlights how fulfillment can be achieved... even on a budget.
One of the family focused Christmas ideas is the Advent Calendar and/or Advent Wreath. The Calendar and/or wreath can be one the first Christmas decoration you start with on December 1st. Both will start your holiday season with excitement and style.
Of course one the best decorating Christmas ideas is the Christmas tree. You will learn the legends and history of this extraordinarily versatile holiday symbol. No matter what your budget may be, Christmas Ideas will give you lots of Christmas tree decorating ideas. If you have ever wondered why Christmas tree decorations vary so much, you will find the Christmas tree section fascinating reading.
When it comes to Christmas ideas for decorating the home and food presentation, you will find The Holy Plants Of Christmas section extremely enlightening and educational.
The section on Christmas Carols offers enchanting glimpses of old world Christmas celebrations.
Sending and receiving Christmas cards was one of the best Christmas ideas for keeping in touch with family and friends during the holiday season. Over the years that tradition has fallen out of favor. When you read about the history of the Christmas card, you will want to go out and buy a box of cards to send this year.
One of the best Christmas ideas is for you to grab your favorite beverage and curl up on a sofa. Call the family and children to join you while you read the section on Santa Claus of the North Pole, his Elves and his Reindeer's to them. You will find references of when Santa started living at the North Pole, his secret home, a litany of names he goes by and insight to his elves and Reindeer's. You will even find a list of Santa's master Elves and their duties along with an unknown list for his Reindeer's and their unique traits and duties.
If you have a sweet tooth, you will enjoy the Christmas idea and time honored tradition of decorating with and serving candy.
The history of Christmas Legends is detailed and makes for a very interesting read. One of the most interesting legends is the history of Christingle. Christmas Ideas is about finding the real meaning of our historical Christmas celebrations and teaching us new ones.
Finally, it suggests FUN and interesting activities to do with your children, so that you make this exciting time of year...their best ever! Be sure to print out the colorful pages in the back of the book for the children in your life to use. The template for a letter to Santa is priceless.
