MEANINGFUL CHRISTMAS TRADITIONS FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY

WELL, ONLY 6 MORE DAYS…. 

Like many of you, we have excited little people in our home. While the meaning of Christmas isn’t about traditions or about the gifts, it is about celebrating the greatest GIFT OF ALL, JESUS. In this celebration, we have slowly added some Christmas Eve and Christmas Day traditions which my kids totally LOVE. We don’t incorporate every single idea that I’m about to share, but I try to make it interesting.

  • Make Christmas treats or a birthday cake for Jesus

Involving the entire gang in this is so very special. My daughter will be deciding this year what direction that we will go in the kitchen. On Christmas morning, it would be beautiful to sing happy birthday to Jesus as a family.

  • Gifts for Jesus

Along with the cake celebration, adding a few love letters would be the perfect, birthday gift to present to Jesus.  

  • Read the Christmas Story

 Get the Bible and read the real, Christmas story. My husband has done this numerous times, and I love to envision the wonder on that glorious day. 

  • Favorite Christmas Movie

This is always a hit with the entire family. The classic Christmas movies are always the best too. The Grinch and Elf are a favorite for me. 

  • Invite others to Join 

Christmas for some people is the loneliest time of the year. We should always be looking to include those who aren’t as fortunate as us.

  • Christmas Pajamas

This is one of my favorite traditions. I implemented this when we just had Bella. Now, the kids love to get their annual, Christmas jammies. We went a little simpler this year as you can tell.
