Christmas is truly a time for family. The birth of Christ marks the time when all of us were invited to be brothers and sisters in the family of God. It is also time for making and sharing memories. What are your special memories from Christmas' past and what traditions do you have that your family will cherish as fond memories for years to come.
Our family gathers at the church on Christmas Eve for a candlelight ceremony. Then we adjourn to our home for a very casual meal and opening gifts. Prior to the opening of the presents, we take a few minutes for the grand kids to read the Christmas Story from the book of Luke and give thanks in prayer to our marvelous Savior.
Late Christmas morning we reconvene at our daughters' home for breakfast and to see what was left under the tree for the grand kids. Since the youngest is now 11, those days are numbered.
I think my best Christmases have been with hubby. I never really cared that much about the holidays. Any of them. I'm sure this stems from my childhood.ReplyDelete
Love the video.
Have a fabulous day my friend. ☺
Lovely post and yes Christmas is a fun and amazing time. We spend it with family usually my Sister's house. She would have Christmas year round if she could. The kids are all grown up, but perhaps one day a grandchild will come around and that will make it even more special. :) Happy WWReplyDelete
Beautiful ornament! We always go to the Christmas Eve candlelight service at 11 and since my son's birthday is also on Christmas Day, I always make a point of whispering "Happy Birthday" in his ear at the stroke of midnight. It usually happens just as we are singing "Silent Night". He looks forward to that every year.ReplyDelete
