Thursday Thanks Tank #83 + Christmas Traditions










As you'll notice quickly, I am doing a tandem post today. I call it multi-tasking.

For I cannot post anything about my Christmas traditions without thanking God for those very traditions that make me even more grateful for this time of year.

Here are a few of the traditions that carry us through each bless-ed Christmas season:
I am thankful for so many other things this week, but I want to encourage you to head on over to My Quiet Corner's gathering. Grab your favorite mug of tea, coffee, or hot chocolate and join the festivities. I know I've already enjoyed read Momrn's, and I am sure the ideas and traditions of others will inspire me for the future.

Have a thanks-filled day and don't forget to let me know if you've posted your own list of thanks. I will come visit when I get the chance!

Acting out the nativity story is such a great idea - I love it!
I am gathering some great ideas to share with my daughters who are just beginning their families.
Bless you today!

WOW... Not only do we hold very similar traditions... we both chose to share them as the ones we cherish most. :-)

I love the idea of your children acting out the Christmas story! What a great way to ingrain it into their very thinking and being!

Thanks for participating and sharing these fun family times together.

Pam, I LOVE your traditions. I also get my oldest (Courtney) a different ornament each year. It is always some kind of horse or has a horse on it. This year I am getting her an Amish buggy pulled by a horse with little people that I bought when we went to Lancaster Co. area for spring break!
I will be posting more traditions on my blog during the next couple of weeks.
(love the idea of the play acting Nativity). We always read Luke 2 and then soemthing my husband chooses from the several xmas books we have before opening gifts.

I love The Arrival... they read it at church last year. I need to get his book and add it to our collection! It's a great thing to add to the reading of Luke 2!

Love your site design!

I have been working on a story about Christian Christmas traditions to keep Christ the focus of the season! It's great to see that your family is building such sweet traditions.

I just posted my first Christmas Tradition about that very thing! Last night, we went to our married daughter's home for dinner and she showed us their newly decorated Christmas tree-filled with the Christmas Ornaments I collected as she was growing up. Never, when I was buying them all those years ago could I have imagined the joy I would feel seeing them on her own tree.

Great traditions!

Diane
