We are still working on forming some Christmas traditions here, but one that we started last year was a felt advent calendar. (Sounds like Gretchen’s.) We read a card, a Bible verse, sing a song and put a felt piece on our advent calendar each evening as a family. This is great for our young kids right now, and I look forward to discussing things more and more each year as the kids grow!
Something we did last year, that I plan on repeating this year was a horse drawn carriage ride around down town Spokane! They provided music/words for Christmas carols that we got to sing with complete strangers … it was lots of fun!
If you have a tradition that you’d like to share, I’d love to read it! Something that you do with your school age children? Maybe even something that’s not an every year event but that has been good to do on some years?
