Making Memories: Presence Not Presents This Christmas

Every year at this time, children get excited. School is about to break for the winter vacation, the nights are darker earlier and the Christmas tree is lit every night. The letters to Father Christmas have been written and the stockings wait by the fireplace for Christmas Eve. For children, Christmas is usually a time to get excited about the presents, and it’s up to us as adults to teach them that there is so much more to it than that.

Even if you are not a religious family, Christmas will have a special meaning for you. It’s about family togetherness and spending time as a unit doing fun activities and remembering the giving part of the holiday. Children may be excited for the presents under the tree on Christmas morning, but the bit they are most excited about is spending time with you.

You get to spend time making memories and capturing them on your Olympus camera. Snapping shots of the Christmas baking and the paper chains you’ve made and taking pictures of the family, all together having fun is a great way to keep the memories living forever.
