TTAH Tuesday – Keeping Christ in Christmas

Struggling to find ways to keep your (and your kids’) focus on Christ during this busy season??

One of my favorite traditions we’ve started is having a birthday party for Jesus on Christmas Eve. 

We have a ham dinner and usually invite extended family over.  For dessert, we have a cake – complete with candles and singing happy birthday to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.  Then we go to our church’s Christmas Eve candlelight service.

This is a simple way to incorporate into our holiday a reminder of the true reason for Christmas.  That God sent his one and only Son to Earth to die on the cross for our sins.  Jesus is the greatest gift ever and we give each other gifts to symbolize that. 

It’s great for the kids because a birthday party is such a tangible and familiar way to celebrate.  Try it this year!

Merry Christmas!
