This Is Why Christmas Traditions Are Important To Children


Mamalette as you go about planning this Christmas holiday have you stopped to think about why Christmas traditions are important to children?

What makes Christmas special for your children? What are the habits and traditions that mean the most to your child? Is it the gifts on Christmas day, the food or an activity that you perform together as a family or perhaps a special relative or a food item?

In this part of the world, Santa or Father Christmas is what makes the season come alive to children. Christmas decorations and lights also add to that magical and exciting feeling. Everywhere they look they see signs of Christmas. And when Christmas morning finally comes and they find gifts left by Santa, the entire season can and does bring wonder and magic into their lives.


While it is not always easy for us mothers due to the extra preparation that goes into this festive season, remember that the time and love we lavish on our children is important to their understanding and enjoyment of Christmas.

Christmas traditions also brings the following benefits to children. It brings stability as children come to learn that regardless of the changes that life brings, traditions will be a consistent constant.

Christmas traditions brings unity and builds identity as it brings families together and when children are invited to take part in family traditions it helps them feel accepted within their family unit.

Gifts To Get That Special Man In Your Life This Father’s Day


Would you agree with me that fathers don’t get celebrated enough i mean mother’s day comes twice in a year but father’s day comes only once, Lol. So on this wonderful day where we get to celebrate those wonderful husbands, fathers, brothers and friends in our live we usually wonder what we can possibly get them this fathers’ day.

Lets look at this suggestion on what to get this special men in our lives on this day specially dedicated to celebrate them.  

  • Shoes: This is usually a good gift idea because practically every man likes a good pair of shoe. Take a shoe from his rack, check the size and good buy him a lovely pair of shoes. Better still take him along with you have him pick out a pair he likes and pay for it. 
  • Watches: This are also a very safe choice for men. While not all men are particular about shoes, some actually cant do without their watch. Make sure the person you are buying it for actually likes watches.
  • Cufflinks: This works very well especially if your man wears corporates a lot. Get a beautiful pair of cufflinks for your man to go with his shirts.
  • Shirts: This are also a very safe gift to buy because every man especially a working class man has shirts in his closet. So why not buy him a shirt.
  • Native Wear: You really cant go wrong with native wears get him a beautiful guinea material and give his tailor who already has his measurement and surprise him with it. Top it off with an agbada. I am sure that would put a smile on his face.
  • Football Jersey: Practically every man in Nigeria is a football fanatic so why not order him a customised jersey from his favorite football club. That would definitely make his day.

You can also get him a cologne, treat him to a spa day or if your husband is a bookworm buy him a book. The truth is you are the one that knows what works best for the man in your life, hopefully I have helped you to come up with a perfect gift for that special Father in your life. 


Remember Anyone can be a father, but it takes someone special to be a dad, so lets take our time to celebrate them this father’s day. 

Happy Father’s Day to all the amazing Papalettes!!
