Tis the season to be jolly! Yes, it’s the Christmas season! You’ve set up the Christmas tree, you’ve bought your Christmas gifts (I hope), you’ve decorated the house.. but you’re struggling to come up with Christmas picture ideas you can upload to your Instagram account!
Don’t worry I’ve got you covered! I came up with these 8 Christmas picture ideas. I also scouted Instagram for examples for some inspiration.
Christmas Picture Ideas
“Family comes first.” We’ve heard that before. It’s something we live by. Nothing says Christmas like having the family come together. Bring your family together for a selfie

3) Focus on the Reason: Jesus
He’s the reason for the season. Can’t be Christmas without Jesus Christ.
Bill's 2015 #Christmas ornament from me. I absolutely love it! I found it at the #WeekendtoRemember conference. I absolutely love the entire line of decorative items I found there- called Ever Thine Home. I highly recommend it. Here's what Barbara Rainey says: The #anchor cross has symbolized hope since the early days of the church Hebrews 6:19-20 tells us "we have this as a sure and steadfast anchor of the soul. A hope that enters into the inner place… Where Jesus has gone… on our behalf. As an anchor holds a ship in place, so the anchor of Christ's work as Messiah holds us steady in the winds of life. This hope "does not disappoint." Romans 5:5 Now our tree is complete. #iloveyou @wm.schmidt and I love this #tradition. #christinchristmas #loverofmysoul

5) House Christmas Decorations
A lot of time and effort (yeah, and money) is spent decorating houses on Christmas. Why not show the world the all that creativity?

6) Nativity Scene
The nativity scene. The most important part of Christmas. Yes, even more than the Christmas tree!

The best way to spend Christmas is actually attending a Christmas mass! Take a picture (try avoiding taking one during mass. Wait till it’s done).
This was how I spent my #Christmas Eve! The midnight service at the #Cathedral Parish of St. Philip, where the Right Reverend Robert Wright preached a masterful sermon entitled "An Inconvenient Baby." The Bishop bravely and expertly juxtiposed the nativity of Our Lord with the major immediate sociological and political challenges we currently face. The #Gospel should confront us and challenge us to change and grow- even at times of merriment. #architecture #cathedrals #cathedra #vaultedcielings #BlackLivesMatter #ChristmasEveflow #ChristmasEve #MidnightMass #Christmastide #Advent #ChristmasMass #HolyEucharist #HolyCommunion #EpiscopalChurch #AnglicanCommunion #HighChurch #Liturgy #Christianity #DioceseofAtlanta #BishopRobertWright #StPhilipsCathedral

Remember what are the most important aspects of Christmas. Then reflect that on your Instagram account. It’s a good time to share your Christian faith, your family values and/or your food (because Instagram).
