Have you ever dutifully traipsed through a complete Christmas season only to look back with grief and regret that you did not savor the special time with the people you love? Yes, sadly, I have. How many times have we been on the run to pick up $5 gifts for the gift exchanges, making side dishes for potlucks, arranging for babysitters and running out the door to the work party, and hurrying off to choir practice? All that’s even before we get to our December school work! Yes, yes, and sadly, yes.

Pledge to make this year different. Pull some commitments off of your calendar and stop to look your precious family members in their eyes. Here are some great Charlotte Mason ideas for gentle ways to incorporate the celebration of Christ’s birth into your school day. When you get to the end of your holidays you’ll be so glad that you took steps to put your priorities first – enjoying the glory of the season with your family in every part of your days.
