Several years ago, when Mister Bull was probably 4 years old, we noticed a pattern in him that bothered us. He compared everything. Now, while I know some of that is normal with boys, we put our foot down when it spilled over into his attitude during birthdays and Christmas. He began to size up how happy he was by how many presents he received. It became more about the presents than about the actual celebration – whether it be his birthday or Christmas. We also realized he was missing the point of Christmas – to celebrate our Savior’s birth.

So we decided things needed to change. A friend of mine and her husband had implemented this tradition in their family and I thought it would be a good fit for ours. But, with such young children we have tweaked it just a little to include our little ones – and so everyone still receives the full benefit.

Join me over at Frugal Homeschool Family today, as I share our family’s $5 Christmas Tradition!!
