My oldest daughter enjoys reading my blog and has noticed how much fun I am having with it so she asked if she could share a post. What a great idea! So the following is her thoughts on Christmas traditions. Enjoy!
Do you have any Christmas traditions? Does your family do anything special? I have heard a lot of fun Christmas traditions that my friends do. Many go to the movie theater, eat out, or a maybe it is putting up a tree together. Whatever it is, it makes a holiday special in my opinion.
Our family has a lot of fun ones. We put up a real tree a couple of weeks before Christmas and decorate it all together while listening to Christmas music.
Another one we have is shopping and making shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child. I love putting boxes together for children that are less fortunate than me.
I also look forward to fun pajamas that are Christmas themed. Our family on Christmas day eats breakfast pizza for brunch, and has a Christmas picnic for supper.
I look forward to these things. When we do these things repeatedly year after year you never really think about what Christmas would be without them. You know what I mean?
To my Dad Christmas Eve wouldn’t be Christmas Eve without watching the movie A Christmas Story. So this holiday have fun with your traditions and remember Jesus is the reason for the season.
