It is the day we celebrate all that is associated with Christmas. Family. Friends. The birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ.
We’ll gather together tonight.
We’ll eat… really good food.
We’ll visit and the children will play.
We’ll read from Luke Chapter 2 and sing carols in all the appropriate spots while our children act out the Nativity.
We’ll exchange toot-ta-doos and laugh at their contents.
And when our friends have departed we’ll open the pajamas that Grandma sent.
And the beautifully wrapped packages that my sister’s family sent us for the sibling gift exchange.
We’ll read A Christmas Dress for Ellen and The Night Before Christmas.
The boys will bring down the wrapped packages they have kept squirreled away.
We’ll put Santa’s cookies and milk on a plate and make sure there is celery for the reindeer.
Then we’ll go to bed.
While we sleep the magic of Christmas morning will be laid beneath the tree.
Just as many years ago a precious baby boy was laid in a manger.
We have a book I believe in Santa Claus. It beautifully shares the symbols of Christmas as they relate to Christ and his love for us.
All of our traditions, all of the excitement and the magic of Christmas come because of the love of Heavenly Father who sent his son to be our Savior.
As I cradle my baby girl, I’m in awe of their love for us.
I hope that you have a wonderful, beautiful, love filled Christmas.
