During the month of December we will be focusing on holidays here at Emerging Parents. This is wide open to allow reflections on Christmas, Advent, or whatever Holiday you celebrate this month. We would love to hear personal stories, traditions, thoughts on consumerism and gift giving, ways to make the season meaningful to kids, resources you have found helpful, or whatever comes to mind. Many of us are attempting to work out how to be intentional in how we celebrate holidays and would appreciate learning from others.

There are a few people signed up already to post this month (see the list here), but we could use more contributors. So even if you just have a question you would like to pose to the group or a short advent reflection that you used with your kids, go ahead and post it.

I look forward to learning from everyone this month.

Here is a fun little video about comsumerism that I did with my family for our church. The shop we parodied is Birtish, but I think the sentiment is pretty international. Enjoy!
