Nativity of Christ is the Brightest and Kindest Holiday of the Year
Children treat this holiday with a special tender and reverence.
Children treat this holiday with a special tender and reverence. When a child decorates a Christmas tree and makes toys with their parents, the first ideas about Christmas are formed. At this very moment you can tell them why the Christmas tree is crowned with a star, and what the toy angels on the branches symbolize.
It is important to show children that love for one's neighbor is not limited to gifts. It is shown in daily acts of care, responsiveness and attention. To be kind, it is not necessary to make grand gestures, it is enough to help your mother, to say a kind word, to share a toy in kindergarten. You don't need a special day for such kindness.
In kindergarten, children are already interested in watching the Nativity plays and asking questions. Books designed specifically for children's perception of the Holy story, such as the Children's Bible, can help parents answer these questions. You can also find Christian images in the poems of Russian poets such as Sasha Chorny, Afanasy Fet, and others.
All nations associate Christmas with mercy, gratitude, and forgiveness. On this day it is customary to do good things, to help the unfortunate, and to give presents, because they symbolize the gifts that were brought to the infant Christ.
