2. Focus on activities, not gifts

Enjoy the Christmas spirit with your family instead of worrying about material things. While gifts can be nice, the real memories come from sledding with the kids, taking a late-night drive around town or caroling with friends. Spend some time surfing the Internet and you’ll find hundreds of great ideas to get your children involved in free festive activities. Everything that is done together, from making Christmas crafts to playing games and puzzles, is always appreciated. Having fun together should be high on the priority list. Don’t forget to grab a camera to capture those moments of joy and delight.
