Children are often filled with curiosity towards the world around them. They want to know the who, what, when, where, and why of everything. As a parent, sometimes it’s hard to be ready with the right answers. As Christmas approaches, your child may have some questions about the common traditions that accompany it. If you are like me, you may know some vague answers, but nothing solid. You may have good intentions on looking up the necessary answers but busy life just gets in the way and it gets pushed aside until later.
Meanwhile, the questions from you child continue and increase and even your own wonder is piqued and you have some thoughts swirling around in your mind.
Have you ever wondered why we have Christmas trees?
What about how the legend of Santa Claus began?
Oranges in stockings?
What does it all have to do with Jesus and His birth?
The lovable Buck Denver and his friends are back in Why Do We Call it Christmas? which takes a journey through history to explain all of our beloved Christmas traditions to little ones. In this 60 minute long DVD, all of the familiar and lovable characters from the What’s in the Bible? series take children on a journey through all of the familiar aspects of Christmas while providing their origins throughout history.
I love the educational depth of these videos, especially this one. Yes, it’s filled with puppets and fun songs, but the lessons learned are so much more fulfilling than your average children’s show. While the characters are for children, they also speak to children as if they can understand what they are teaching. There is no oversimplification just because the audience will be young ones. Children respect when they are treated in this way. They are able to soak in much more than most adults give them credit for absorbing.
As the Advent season approaches, give your children the gift of real Christmas history and tradition alongside your family preparations and celebrations. Point them to Christ so the holiday has real meaning beyond the presents to them.
