The True Meaning of Christmas

Christmas can be a pretty stressful time of year. There is so much to do and so little time to do it. I mean, 365 days it is not nearly enough time to stress, procrastinate, decorate, and shop for gifts, not to mention moving an elf around every night!

Like most people, I find myself wrapped up (pun intended) in all of the holiday madness. In the midst of all the hustle and bustle, most of us need to be reminded of what the true meaning of Christmas really is. So, I decided to ask some elementary kids what they thought. Their responses blew me away! Children sure do have a way putting things back into perspective for us.

As an added bonus, I asked them a few additional questions about the holidays. How they responded will show you exactly how funny, kindhearted, thoughtful, and just plain adorable they are!!! So, a special “THANK YOU” to all of the kiddos featured in this video! YOU ROCK!!!!
