Belle doesn't know it's Christmas. She acknowledges the decorations and the lights without knowing the meaning. I can still keep Christmas simple this year because Belle hasn't succumbed to consumerism. I have, therefore, filled our Christmas stockings with oranges, tangerines, Skyflakes crackers and popcorn. These are Belle's favorites anyway, just dressed up.
Belle's play kitchen has been erected and stocked with play food. She will find a stuffed bunny, jumbo crayolas, a wooden puzzle, a Doodle Pro and Mega Bloks on Christmas morning. Last year's birthday and Christmas gifts are still relevant and are actively being played with. I may bring a few things out I have been saving until Belle displays readiness because Belle might be ready to play with them now.
