I have been hearing so much that Christmas is so commercial and some complain that Christmas is too stressful and a burden. I just wanted to share with you how grateful I am for the first gift of Christmas, Our Savior. I love this time of year when we can celebrate him. I am grateful that my family has so many opportunities to celebrate him, I thought I would share a few with you.
Our favorite tradition is Temple square. We love the lights, but we also love the Nativities that are set out. We also got to go to the Mormon Tabernacle Choir broadcast/concert this year.
We always have family home evening this month that center around the Christ Child. Even though my kids have big Christmas's due to Grandma & Grandpa and a little by us, my kids love to put up or Nativity. Our house is full of Christmas over the fireplace, the kitchen, the tree, the front of the house. Our nativity is small and simple, but beautiful. Rogers Grandmother brought it to us from Jeruselam. Almost everyday I notice that the figures have been moved around by one of the kids.
We also have a Christmas Party with Great Grandma the first sunday of December each year. It sets the tone for our holiday it seems. We always sing corals(it takes about in hour). We sing some holiday favorites like roudolf, but we focus on hymns and primary songs.
I been so blessed with good kids! I am so grateful!
I hope your Holiday is filled with Love and Happiness!
