Introducing – Christmas Traditions from Our Home, to Yours

by Deb


Do you begin listening to Christmas music on a specific day each year?
Do you open gifts on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day?
Do you enjoy a real or artificial tree? With multi-color or white lights?
Do you chart the season with an Advent calendar or wreath?

So much of our celebrating of Christmas is wrapped up with the ribbon of traditions. They become a part of us. Some we cherish. Others we laugh at. Some we take into marriage. Others we leave behind.

One thing is certain . . . traditions are an important part of Christmas. It’s never too late to add a new ritual, because traditions are our memory makers.

During the month of December the team at 5 Minutes for Faith is going to share its most treasured Christmas traditions. You’re not going to want to miss a single post . . . so, if you have not yet subscribed to receive posts by email, now is the perfect time. Just add your email address to the Newsletter Signup in the sidebar.

You don’t want to miss learning how:

  • one family uses the Christmas cards they receive throughout the year.
  • another family has enhanced gift giving.
  • a family uses Christmas carols to bless their family devotions.
  • someone serves the elderly through music.
  • a family sets aside specific times for family traditions.
  • one family bakes goodies filled with love.

From our families to yours we want to share how we are blessed by the above traditions and many more.

Visit often and please share your own family traditions with us.

It can be so easy to get caught up in the business, and busyness, of Christmas that we can tend to forget to focus on the Christ-child. The One who is the reason for our joy, our hallelujahs, our hope, and our celebrations.

For to us a child is born,
to us a son is given,
and the government will be on His shoulders.
And He will be called
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
Isaiah 9:6
