Christmas Traditions: Taking You Back to The True Meaning

It's so easy around Christmas time to forget what it's all about. We get so wrapped up in decorations, gifts, and good food that we forget to take the time to reflect on Jesus' birth.  I wanted to share some tradition ideas that will help keep Christ at the center of Christmas Festivities.

Make a Birthday Cake for Jesus

This is a neat way to remind kids that Christmas is actually a celebration of Christ's birth. You could even go all out and throw Jesus a whole birthday party!

Operation Christmas Child

I have been involved with Operation Christmas Child multiple times and I LOVE it. It puts the focus back on giving instead of receiving gifts. 


Letters/Prayers to Jesus

Having Children write out prayers for the needs of others during Christmas time will instill in them that Christmas is more about giving then receiving. Also you are bound to get some cute responses out of them ;) 

Read The Christmas Story as a Family


I think the most important thing you can do is remember to make the holidays about Christ, your family, and giving. And less about receiving! 

Feel free to share any traditions that your family enjoy

Have a Blessed day!!
