This season may we never forget the love we have for Jesus.
My boy went home with a little advent booklet from his class. It includes some important prayers and scriptures that a kid should know, and most importantly, it also shares a story about the birth of baby Jesus.
But there’s a special page which I find interesting to share with you- the advent calendar.
It encourages your children to do a simple act of kindness each day, to all the people around them.
December (first week of advent starting 30th November, Sunday)
1 (Monday) – I will give a smile to all I meet today
2 (Tuesday) – I will make a special effort to be kind to those I find it hard to like.
3 (Wednesday) – I will obey my parents, my teachers, and other in charge of me.
4 (Thursday) – I will try to show special love for someone who seems unhappy and lonely.
5 (Friday) – I will secretly do a kind act for someone.
6 (Saturday) – I will work hard today and do my best.
Time and again, I am being reminded by my children how exciting this season is. It’s 21 days closer ’til the birth of our baby Jesus, and I know each kid is as excited as them too. I hope that you agree with me, that not every month felt a lot like Christmas. Take time to share this calendar to your family and loved ones. Let’s bring back the old Christmas spirit.
We would like to give credits to Ms. Fanny and her co-teachers. Thanks for spreading the love.
