Welcome to JollyDaze 4 & me!A short six week meme to carry us through the end of the year.
A meme for us to enjoy the holidays with.
We'd love to have you join us! Click here for more info.
Christmas morning starts with stockings, which is one of my favorite parts. Mom puts the best stuff in our stockings--I hope to learn that knack...
After the kids open their stockings, we have a big breakfast, and do the dishes, much to the kids' frustration, LoL.
THEN we move on, beginning with...
A tradition my father started years ago is to read the Luke 2 account of the birth of Jesus. It's one of those things that's near and dear to us and something we've continued on with even when Mom and Dad aren't with us for Christmas.
After Dad or Jim reads Luke 2 and we talk about it some, then comes the gifts. One at a time, taking turns so we can enjoy and savor each gift given and received.
Christmas is a family time we treasure.
So tell me, what's your favorite family Christmas tradition?
