What great suggestions you have David! Something we have always done is to have a birthday cake for Jesus. We have often been the “out of town visitors” in the past several years and even so, folks expect us to bring the birthday cake. It has often served as an excellent opportunity to share the Luke 2 history too. Merry Christmas!

Great ideas. My family and I have been celebrating and enjoying the family dinner, the Christmas play at church, and at an early age, my parents made us (my sister and brother) learn the Christmas passage in Luke. I am now going to encourage my nephew to begin the tradition of the family movie. Thank you so much for the suggestions.

I was surprised you didn’t mention a nativity or manger scene. If you have a beautiful heirloom set that you don’t feel comfortable having the children touch, make sure that you also have a set that little hands are welcome to handle. The children can first be told the Bible story while they hold one or more pieces, and as they grow older you can have them tell you the story.
In our family, it has also become our tradition to include, along with the wrapped gifts on Christmas morning, a basket with straw and a baby doll wrapped in clothes to lay in this “manger.” This reminds us of the most important gift of all: our dear Savior Jesus Christ.

I’d like to share one of our children’s favorite traditions. When we decorate for ChrisTmas and set up our nativity we don’t put baby Jesus in the scene. We have a beautiful purple velvet gift box that we place him in and put it under the tree. Then on ChrisTmas morning we read the Luke passage and before opening any gifts, one of the children opens this special gift first and places Him in the nativity scene. =)

since I was a little boy the baby Jesus was not in the manger scene until the night he was born and one of us was chosen to put Jesus in the manger…and light a candle by him..while the Christmas story was being read…My family is gone now but I still do the same thing and will as long as I can…just one of the highlights of being here for Christmas.

Christmas is literally all about eternal life Its the Reason Christ came and died yet like him we to will not die but live forever where He is Nothing brings this home more then the death of a close family member. We lost our 16 year old son Robbie to a short 5 week battle with Leukemia Feb 2015
So we adapted a wonderful idea from another in our Grief Share group to place a taller candle in a small upright glass and with marker write the names of all family member who have already left us Then somewhere in the middle of our time together whoever wants to choose one candle and then we go around the room, light that candle and that person shares one good memory or that person. The candles burn the remaining of the night in reference to their life also continues. Then we have added something the kids really like and near the end of the night we buy Chinese candles that have a small candle like thing and we use a marker and put names on them then we all release them outside all at once to signify that is their life and exactly what they did when they passed. Of course one candle has Jesus name on it and it is always released first.
