Some simple ways that you can incorporate the real meaning of Christmas into your family’s holiday:

A Savior has been born to you
Throw a birthday party for Jesus, complete with birthday cake. This can be particularly meaningful for younger children, as it puts Christ’s birth in a context they can relate to.Glory to God in the highest
Christmas carols, or to share with others the good news of His redeeming love. Gather friends and family and go caroling in a wing at your local hospital or seniors’ residence. Check with your church or other local churches to see if there are any folks who can’t get out of their homes during the holidays and take your caroling to them. Music is a great way to open a door for talking with people about the spiritual context of the holiday season.Good will toward menGift giving is a wonderful way to reflect to each other, God’s love for us. This seems particularly true when we are giving of our time and gifts to those in need.

  • Forgo traditional Christmas gifts – make a donation in someone’s name rather than giving that person a gift; take a child out to eat at their favorite restaurant and then take them to the toy store where they can choose a gift…for a less fortunate child.
  • Invite your loved ones to church - many churches go to great lengths when they plan Christmas services, to reach those who do not yet know Christ.

“Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord” (Luke 2:11).
