I have always made a birthday cake for Jesus, and had the family sing "Happy Birthday" to Jesus. Sounds corny, but my kids really liked it.

Madison I am willing to sing for your cooking too........ I'll even put on some old Jeans and carry a sign saying, "Feed me or I'll move into your neighborhood."

I grew up in a national park. The snowdrifts could easily reach six feet. Christmas eve, the park service families would walk through the snow to our community church. (All denominations together). Fresh pine boughs and only candlelight. We sang Christmas songs/hymns, read the scriptures, birth of Jesus Christ. Snow was falling outside, no cars, total silence. We would walk back home through the snow. Those were the best Christmas memories of my life.

We read Luke 2:1-22 and discuss the importance of what the setting was, the ones involved, and the life that was to come. Then a prayer of thanks. We then share presents such as may have been shared at that time. There is no tree but we do have lights and nativity setting. Then there is a time for snacks and fellowship.

Sometimes I'll give a special gift to missionaries in honor of members of my family. I got our Highscool youth group doing this too. it takes their mind off of recieving and focused more on the true meaning of Christmas, the Gospel of Christ and the Kingdom of heaven.

Other than having oyster stew on Christmas Eve we don't have any unique traditions. We have alot of German Lutherans in my family so we do have a small Chrismon tree in addition to our 'kiddie' tree every year, though - and we always hide the pickle ornament on that one.

I like both of those ideas. I'm going to borrow and do them at the same time. Thanks so much.

Hi; I love both your ideas; Madison, I've done that too--the cake thing! :P Never a WRONG reason to have cake lol! :D Seriously, though, I think it's great; God bless :)

I am having a candlelight dinner and a candlelight service at my house for "who so ever will come, let them come." I've asked folks to come prepared to share a story of a miracle God did for them or a healing or to just recite a favorite poem or scriptures. I can't wait, I'm very excited about this.
