We were able to celebrate Christmas with my side of the family last weekend. Growing up I always treasured the simple things that made Christmas special – attending church together on the weekend of Christmas, singing carols with my mom, fixing cookies and milk for my dad to eat when he came home from midnight shift, gazing at the Christmas tree in the dark, reading the Christmas story from Luke 2, watching A Charlie Brown Christmas year after year.
Once again it wasn’t the extraordinary gifts or gestures; It’s the simple things I treasure most.
So how are YOU simplifying things this Christmas?
Are you cutting back your budget and making it a more financially responsible Christmas?
Are you taking the stress out of decorating?
Are you making homemade DIY Christmas gifts instead of fighting the crowds?
Are you filling your holiday with less stuff and more purpose?
Are you limiting activities and instead giving to others and building traditions?
Are you making the holiday menu more simple by easy recipes or even ordering in a meal?
Bob Evans has a Farmhouse Feast Holiday Meal To Go that includes a slow-roasted turkey or boneless ham, four delicious sides, pumpkin bread, dinner rolls, and pumpkin pie for $74.99., which feeds 6-8 people. We ordered a hearty delicious meal recently and enjoyed a night off in the kitchen with an easy clean up!
Along with feeding my family, they’ve provided a $25 gift card to offer one of my readers.
