Christmas Is For Children

Bookmark and Share
The meaning of Christmas might be better explained through the eyes of a small child. The joy and happiness that one has at gift opening is when a small three year old gets a new baby doll and excitedly go "whoo hooo, my baby" and jumps up and down hugging the box the baby is in. Although it does not take much to excite little ones, it is amazing to see such excitement from a little girl who thinks that everything she got for Christmas was the most exciting thing in the world.

Now dad really cannot open his presents, because that baby has to come out of the box so that the bonding can take place. Toy manufacturers never really thought about this process when they wired these dolls to the box so they could not escape. First, you need a scissors to cut the straps, and then you need an engineer's degree to figure out how this doll really comes out of the box. After fifteen to twenty minutes, the baby is finally released and the bonding begins.

Now that all the fun is over it is time to count the gifts and make sure they are still there. After that, it is time to see what others have gotten and maybe try out some of their toys. Now, you have an aunt that remembers when her kids were small and everyone thought that loud noise making toys were appropriate, it is time to see how it feels. You have this amazing little gadget that resembles an electric keyboard, but it has eight buttons that give you rock, jazz and dance beats and four drum pads. What a thrill it is to give it to two nieces in one night.

The only thing to remember, is the adults love little kids toys as well and put these two things together with a portable DVD player playing some sort of dance video for kids in a room filled with twenty-two people talking and laughing and you have succeeded in driving everyone nuts. This is what Christmas is all about, everyone having a good time and seeing the kids so excited over the gifts that they received.

    I 100% agree with you on that...when you have babies, it's all about them. Christmas gifts should be meant for children and you can give your immediate family a couple of things, but totally optional :). Great blog!
