Setting the Mood for Christmas Morning


When my children wake up on Christmas morning, the morning we celebrate the gift of Christ, I want all of their senses to immediately recognize something special has happened!

Sight: The house is already decorated, and there are presents under the tree! The Christmas lights are left on over night which is the only night we leave them on.

Smell: I put a pot on the stove with orange rinds, cloves, cinnamon, and nutmeg. I usually have  candle burning in a safe place too.

Sound: I have Christmas music playing.

Taste: I have ham and turkey croissants waiting on the table.

My children told me last year how much they love and look forward to these things.
