We are well into December and my kids are counting down the days until Christmas. Every morning they go over to the calendar which hangs on our refrigerator door and excitedly announce how many more days are left until Christmas morning.
We’ve hunted for the perfect tree. The younger two have both seen Santa. We’ve looked at holiday lights and are currently preparing for their annual school performances. I’ve been shopping for the kids and have taken them each individually to shop for each other. Emma and Noah have no problem picking something out for themselves, however this year it’s been a little more challenging for them to pick something out for Anika. They know she’s old enough now that they can’t shop in the toy aisle anymore, but they still want to find something special for her that she will like.
This got me thinking about teenagers in general, and how the holidays change for them. No longer do they find as much excitement in seeing Santa or reading Christmas stories at night, so how does one transition into making the holiday season as meaningful for teens?
