Each year, starting from November, it becomes hard to ignore the festive atmosphere that fills the air and the fact that another Christmas is just round the corner. Christmas pictures suddenly become very popular all across the world. They appear everywhere – from covers of magazines to billboards.

People decorate their houses with Christmas pictures and class teachers have little children color them. Christmas pictures adorn the employee notice boards of businesses and the lobbies of restaurants.

Teaching traditions with pictures

Christmas pictures add a sense of nostalgia and tradition to the festive mindset in November and December. They are colorful, they are inspiring and they revive connection to childhood memories. These pictures are a great way to teach little children the folklores and traditions of Christmas. While they color each picture and listen to the story behind those pictures, from their teachers or parents or older siblings, their fertile minds are embedded with these images. Years later they will take great pride in doing the same for their own children and grandchildren. Christmas pictures are as wide in their range as are the stories around Christmas. Which child hasn’t seen pictures of Santa Claus scampering down the chimney or flying high on his sleigh, pulled mightily by the eight reindeers?  And then there are pictures of the snowmen and the colorfully decorated Christmas trees against the backdrop of falling snow flakes. There are pictures of beautiful houses set under sparkling stars and surrounded by a blanket of snow.
