How can you celebrate Christmas with your 2 to 3 year old?

Even if your baby is only 30 to 36 months old, he can also be as excited as the rest of the people around him when it comes to celebrating Christmas. But your toddler is still too young to understand the true essence of Christmas, so you have to help him understand it somehow. Young children, even your baby, may love rituals and so you may start with your own tradition as well. You may choose to drive around the neighbourhood and watch all the sparkling lights or read holiday stories to him while sitting around the Christmas tree or listen to Christmas carols.
 
Even if your baby is as young as 2 or 3 years old, he can already start understanding the basic building blocks of a relationship which is love and trust. He can already learn the important concepts of a relationship just by the way you are treating him, particularly in the first few years of your baby's life. At his young age, he can already start learning and understanding how other people should be treated, just by watching you as well.
 
You may use the Christmas season to impart the basic ideas to your baby through your actions. You can do this by participating in a religious ceremony, giving away foods to those families who are in need or by simply baking biscuits and cakes and sharing them with your neighbours.
