Yes, yes… I know we haven’t gathered around the Thanksgiving table yet but that’s not going to stop me from giving away some Christmas books today!

I also enjoy everything with my 4 year old grandson during the season and now teaching him about the true meaning of Christmas.

    I became a christian in 1976 so it is knowing the real reason for Christmas. Before we do anything on Christmas morning we read the story of our savior birth and sing a song. I am thankful my children are carrying the tradition.

    There are a lot of things including being with my family. Because I have to travel to see them, I don’t decorate a lot at home.

    My favorite day of the whole year is Christmas Eve. My family all gather together and continue the tradition of reading the Christmas Story from the Bible. My father-in-law always did this until our girls got big enough to read then they wanted to do the reading. My father-in-law has been gone for many years now but his godly influence lives on. On a side note, he was a greeter for LifeWay one Christmas and he enjoyed it so much. He never met a stranger.
