October 31, 2011 | Filed in: 31 Days | by Amanda

{I know, it’s the 31st and this is Day 29. I’ve been having technical difficulties. So, keep your eyes open for *gulp* all THREE 31 Days posts today!!}

Do you remember what it was like to wait for Christmas as a kid? It seemed like several years between each December. Christmas wasn’t just a day, it was an event! I can still chronicle many years by remembering the Christmas holiday.

For kids, special days and holidays are the biggest events of their lives. They may not remember the books we read or the songs we played during the year. But they will remember eating turkey dinner at Grandma’s every year, they’ll remember each ornament on the tree, the spot you always placed the Easter Basket and the rest of your holiday traditions.

As a mom looking for ways to impress God’s Word on my kids’ heart, I have discovered that Christmas and Easter are my biggest and most flamboyant vehicle to teach my kids about God.
