Even though we are not religious, I believe in teaching my daughter that Christmas is not about Santa Claus bringing presents and Easter is not about Easter Bunny. We kicked off the Christmas season right after Thanksgiving by pulling a book from our own library – A Baby Born in Bethlehem by Martha Whitmore Hickman. Outside of Joseph being pictured as quite a young man, the book narrates Nativity story pretty well. We also got out our Playmobil characters to replay the story:
I didn’t get Wise Kings in action, they had a hard time getting back into their Playmobil robes and finding their gifts. That’s a problem of Playmobil sets – so much of small plastic stuff floating around even if it’s high quality plastic stuff.
How do you get into holiday spirit?
