Platinum, Gold+, Gold & Silver Only


By and large, we take our cue on how to celebrate Christmas from the culture around us. Probably the most important way that Christmas has become commercialized is through instilling in us all the things that make for a "perfect Christmas." Watch any Christmas special, and I guarantee you that a major plotline will revolve around someone "ruining Christmas" for a group of people. We feel such pressure to get it right and have the perfect experience for ourselves or for our children. 

But nothing could be further from the true Christian understanding of what Christmas is about. This worksheet will explore what it might look like to stop trying to have a perfect Christmas.
