Boy, Do I Need To Catch Up
Question #7 is: What's your favorite holiday tradition?
Since I answered my favorite tradition in Question #6, let try another favorite. On Christmas Eve we go the the Christmas Eve service at church. Afterwards to we go to my son's home and either have a fun snack or like this year, a light supper. The grandkids share with us the new ornaments which are "theirs!" Later, at home, I read two stories: The Night Before Christmas and the Matthew account of the real reason we celebrate Christmas. The readings we have been doing since our first child was born!
Question #8 and #9 is: What's on the top of your tree? Do you have a nativity displayed through the holidays?
The top of our tree has always had an angel. This is a tradition from my childhood that we have kept up. I've have maybe only 3 different angels in Jim and our 30 years of marriage. And we do have a nativity displayed on our fireplace hearth. We have about 10 different nativities, but this year I felt like one is enough. Well, maybe two. My son made a manger scene out of foam, so we do hang that up every year. (Below is our Bailey)
