Love this book! I may need to buy it because I doubt I can remember all the information. It shows all the ways that Christ really is in everything at Christmas and little projects to do with our kids and teachable moments to make it real for them. Many of the ideas I'm going to try and present to our MOPS group.
This is an excellent book for keeping the celebration of Christmas centered on Christ. It covers many traditions, giving the history if applicable, along with suggestions for teachable moments and an activity to do together. Very practical and easy to follow.
We use this book every year in the month leading up to Christmas to focus on the meaning behind the familiar symbols and traditions of Christmas. It's a beautiful, practical, well-laid out book with great ideas and suggestions for all ages.
