I'm trying very hard not to have a repeat of last year's Rachelmas debacle. Not that I anticipate another attack from my oft-grumpy pancreas, but I've just been so grumpy lately over feeling unwell. I've been getting migraines every day, so it's likely that I'll have one on Christmas. I'm preparing myself for that eventuality with a combination of prayer and at-the-ready medication.
What? We have doctors for a reason, right?
So, in the spirit of trying to remember that it's Christmas, not Rachelmas, I've been trying to come up with something to do on Christmas morning that will emphasize the spirit of the occasion to our toddler. He knows it's Jesus' birthday, and he suggested Jesus would like a cake with candles. A cinnamon cake. Which happens to be my son's favorite. I don't even think he asked Jesus what his favorite kind of cake is.
So I want to know: What's a Christmas tradition at your house that puts the focus on the birth of Christ?
Because I kind of want to steal your ideas.
