Pray for your children’s teachers and school administration. If you don’t have children, think of a teacher who really impacted you and pray for him or her. Then pray for one you didn’t like very much.
Go tele-caroling: Call a relative or two and sing a Christmas carol right when they answer. (Or enlist your children to do it for you/ with you.)
Be a secret Santa and get your kids in on the act. Give someone a simple gift and don’t take credit. You could leave baked goods, candy or a sweet anonymous note on a neighbor’s doorstep. Anyone else have any ideas for sneaky gifts? Share your ideas in the comments of this post.
Pray for some of your friends by name that they may have a peaceful, joy-filled, Christ-centered Christmas. Consider sending those for whom you prayed a note letting them that you prayed for them.
