* List attributes of Christ that your family is grateful for on a poster, or made into ornaments on the Christmas tree, or where they can be easily seen. Write, “Jesus is special because…” This could be answered as, “He knows my needs and meets them. Thank you Jesus for the …” and let the writers sign their names. ~ Rhonda Ellis

* Share the Christmas story with children and grandchildren by using flannel graphs. ~ Janice Pender

* Sing “Happy Birthday Jesus” before opening presents. ~ Rhonda Ellis

* Underneath our Christmas tree, we always set up the manager, which is arranged in a place of honor on top of the gifts on Christmas morning. ~ Cindy Hepburn

* Have your family play their musical instruments and or sing together Christmas songs in the evening. Enjoy just being together. ~ Rhonda Ellis

* After Christmas when the stockings are empty, have each family member write down what gift they are giving to Jesus throughout the new year. Put the piece of paper inside the stocking to be read next year. An example of this would be: “I want to die to self. Point out to me when I am being selfish. Help me to see this and put others before myself. My desire is to please You.” ~ Rhonda Ellis

* Our dessert on Christmas day is a cake with white icing and red lettering that reads, “Happy Birthday, Jesus.” We put candles on the cake and sing the birthday song to Jesus. The children look forward to this every year. ~ Lori Lauth
