Family Christmas Eve Traditions


Reading the Christmas Story from The Holy Bible, God’s Word


Reenacting the Christmas Story with Manger Figurines (Be mentally prepared that a piece may get broken. One year we had a Wise Man lose his head on his journey from the Far East to Bethlehem as a grandchild was treating him like an action figure.)


Shining a light on the Christmas Story


Sharing gifts


Playing music on the flute and piano


Remember, feet don’t have to be able to touch the floor for a child to play piano!

Our family worships on Christmas Eve as we give thanks for and share food, as we hear the Christmas story read and reenacted, as we give gifts to one another, and especially as we play instruments and sing together.

    Wow! Your family does a lot on Christmas Eve. We also open presents on Christmas Eve. It is great the way the children help tell the Christmas story.

    When I was a little girl my mother told me Santa is a fun pretend story for kids and Christmas is for celebrating Jesus’ birth.
