“How do I subvert the message my children receive during Christmas?”
Shawn and I were chatting yesterday morning. For some time he found it helpful to only set out an Advent Wreath to subvert the consumer driven nature of the Christmas Season. Now with four children at home and working to balance the tension of “no tree” versus what the tree means if we put one up, he expressed the difficulty many parents face.
The Work of the People came out with a new video that captures a way to offer “tree in the right way.” That is, were we to borrow and image common in Christmas celebrations and flip it in its presentation could we re-configure expectations. We need more upside down trees for right side up celebrations.
