An Idea We Had: One Christmas Morning

My husband and I bought our first house in December of 2005 and we didn't have that much money for Christmas presents. So, we bought a lot of small items and hidden them in our new basement, so our kids couldn't find them because we all know that they get noisy in this time of year. We know that they're so anxious to see what mom and dad bought them for Christmas.

Hurry up and get to the idea you're saying: Here it goes!

We had our kids sleep in the living room on Christmas eve. We knew it would take them awhile for them to fall asleep because teenagers all they like to do is chit chat on the phone or play videos games all night long, if you let them. Once we knew there were knocked out we started our plan.

We went downstairs into the basement and pulled out all the little gifts and started wrapping them up. Once we finished doing that we went back upstair into their bedrooms and placed all the gifts around their rooms. We left the doors opened and started to decorated each door frame with wrapping paper and we decided to make a huge circle out of small bows turning it into one big bow. We wanted to designed the entry way and make it look like gigantic Christmas present that they can tear through in order to get to the little presents.

The following morning when they woke up they were so sad that they didn't see anything underneath the tree because that's where we usually put them every year. They never went upstairs to their bedroom because they were so disappointed that they didn't get anything for Christmas. They washed their sad looking faces and they sat in silence for a few second at the breakfast table until we told them that their Christmas presents were upstairs waiting for them to opened and that shocked them to the core. You should've saw the look on their faces it was priceless but we told them that they had to tear down the wrapping paper from the doorway in order to get their presents.

Once they bursted through the gigantic present and saw the little gifts layout everywhere that brought them tears of joy.

What a small gesture can do? My young adults talk about this "One Christmas Morning" every year from now. It's crazy how this one Christmas idea has inspired them to be so creative on the little things and how something so small can change them for the rest of their lives it's unreal but it has.

Hopefully This Hub Inspires You To Do Something Different.
