Do you think Christmas comes in December because we like to save the best for last? Could be. But first we have to draw out the thrill of the time and get the family psyched for the old traditions, and build some new ones each year! Seems I never got the ‘tradition line up’ perfected… but I certainly enjoyed reliving past season’s fun times and memories with the building and blending of new ideas and local culture.
I love learning about other families traditions. My own were never enough! It’s the holiday season – and just like presents… I like like to handle as many as possible. We learned and experienced different presentations of the holidays – but all with the same theme: family, fellowship, worship and celebration.
The great gifts that you give, make and receive are gifts from the hearts of those who celebrate life around you. Welcome them! Enjoy this season.
