A Gentle + Classical Christmas is a Christ focused resource guide for preparing our hearts, homes and family for Christmas. It's easy to lose sight of the real meaning of Christmas when stress, perfection, consumerism and a culture of "more!" gets in the way.
A GC Christmas is an extremely versatile and simple curriculum while still being so rich and beautiful, from the illustrations to the incorporation of age and theme appropriate scripture and suggested materials. It can be used as is or easily customized to fit any age group, from toddlers on.
My favorite parts have been the book list and inspiration for Christmas traditions along with Erin's wisdom for making Christmas rhythms that are special, stress free, sustainable and personalized to your family's needs.
True to it's name, A GC Christmas is incredibly gentle. If you are looking for a way to add depth to your Christmas season without adding more preparation and stress, this is the answer! I plan to return to it every Christmas as the core to new traditions and rhythms in our home.
