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.
It's all about Christmas traditions, so naturally, I love it! Also has some neat conversation starters with kids relating to the tradition and recipes to try out.
And I love the illustrations.
This book is awesome it talks abought Jesus and what Christmas is all abought, it's not abought presents and Santa and all the other stuff it's abought when Jesus was born!
Has some really sweet traditions and crafts and ideas for the holidays. Has some very basic stuff so don't look to be blown away but you will be pleased with this book, I think.
I love this book. I pull it out around Thanksgiving, and try to start a "new" tradition with the kids each year. I recommend it!
Has some great ideas about creating traditions and keeping God the center of it. Not as extensive as I thought, but still good.

Great ideas of things to do for Advent and how to explain some of our Christmas traditions to and with your kids.
Excellent book, but hard to find. I found one of two copies at Hearts at Home conference.
