Appreciate everything you have..

Christmas has become so commercialised! It is important to remember what is really important!  It is important to teach our students what truly matters and to always be grateful. Christmas is a hard time for some people too. You never know what someone is going  through! Check up on those who you think are struggling. It will mean more to them than you will ever realise!

be thankful

Always be kind to others and be grateful for everything that you have. Christmas time is really about the religious significance but it is also about being grateful and spending time with your family and friends.

Our students need to learn it is not the end of the world if they do not receive a new Naked palette or Justin Bieber concert tickets or FIFA 16 or COD game! They are simply #firstworldproblems

thankful

Appreciate everything that you have and remember those who have nothing. Please give something to another no matter how small it is. I like many others had family members who were affected by the recent flooding crisis.

And then there are all the wars that are happening globally right now. Those people are experiencing grieve and they are in constant fear for their lives!

Christmas is the most special time of year! It brings families/communities together. It is a time where we are thankful for the year that we have just experienced and we prepare for the new year that is just beginning.

Here is a lovely video clip about the strong connection between being grateful and happy!

You could use this video clip in Section D of Junior Certificate Religious Education or LC non exam RE or SPHE.

 

I am going to end this post with a quote from one of favourite children’s books ‘How The Grinch Stole Christmas’ by Dr Seuss.
