When my kids were small they would get up on Christmas morning excited to see what they had received under the tree. But before any presents were unwrapped we would sing Happy Birthday to Jesus and read the bible story of His precious birth and thank him for his sacrifice. It was a tradition in our home to remember and to celebrate the true meaning of CHRISTmas!
Boy do I miss those days.
I know this blog is brand new but if anyone out their in blog land lands here I would love to hear your family traditions.
