Christ in Christmas…..

This has been a hot topic in our Let’s Talk Group this past week…. many wonderful ideas and traditions have been shared ….I thought I would share them with you!

  1. Let your kids shop for Operation Christmas Child, let them pack the boxes and take ownership of sending them to a special child around the world.
  2. Have a “Hands On” Nativity Set for your children to play with!
  3. Play Christian Christmas music in the car..at home and along with your “Frosty the Snowman” songs!
  4. Leading up to Christmas do Advent projects with your children and family.
  5. Let your children use some of their own money to buy presents for their siblings for Christmas.
  6. Bake cookies together! ( deliver some to neighbors and friends)
  7. Have a Birthday Party for Jesus!  Decorate a cake or cupcakes and sing to Jesus!
  8. Attend a Christmas Eve service with your family.
  9. Read the Christmas Story and pray before opening your Christmas Presents.
  10. Make a Jesse Tree, many conversations will come from this about why Jesus is so special to us.

And one for you to read … Francine Rivers story Unafraid:Mary.  This is a nice advent idea that brings Christmas to life!  Mary responded in simple obedience to God’s Call.
