Family Traditions for Holiday Season

Hello All,

From one of the family websites I belong came this posting. while not in the 'Family Reunion' vein I thought it to be a great family tradition.

Does anyone else do something similar to this?

p.s. I've x'ed out names and locations.

Hi Family:

I'd like to hear about some of the long standing Christmas traditions that make your celebration "personal". For the xxxx Family, we have a Jesus' Birthday gathering, this year, xxxx is hosting at his home. It happens on Christmas Eve, everyone brings a dish, a family member will read the Christmas
story from Luke 2:1 - 20 and we will sing carols. Everyone will form a circle and each individual will tell what they are thankful for - it always chokes me up! Someone will say grace and then we eat! For dessert we have a birthday cake and sing Happy Birthday to Jesus. It's a blessed time for us as xxxx's oldest grandkids are off to college and all the babies are growing up so fast!

Please join in and let everyone know how you'll fill your Christmas passion - God's blessings to all, and to all, a goodnight!

Love ya & Merry Christmas, Happy New Year!
