"A Treasured Tradition"
I just wanted to share a wonderful tradition that I started about five years ago and I've enjoyed it so much. I call it my "Christmas Eve walk."
WHAT A WONDERFUL IDEA!!! SOUNDS LIKE SOMETHING I WOULD ENJOY DOING...MAKING SOMEONE HAPPY!!
I ike it too! l'm sure it would make me as happy as the recipient. thanks for the great idea.
A wonderful idea. It would cheer anyone up. Thanks for being so thoughtful.
Excellent idea. But what about staying next time. You just might make a new friend.
What a great idea--nothing like serving someone else to lift your own spirits.
That sounds like a really great idea. Seeing how we can't have a Christmas this year maybe that's what I will do.
Peace & Love,
That's about the coolest tradition I've heard yet! I'm gonna try it!
Hi Stacey, This is the most thoughtful case of better to give than to receive. You are a blessing to us all!
Thank you all! Merry Christmas everyone!
Christmas Morning tradition for children:
The parents hide the baby Jesus from the Nativity Scene in their home; the children have to find the baby Jesus and return it to the Nativity; sing Happy Birthday to Baby Jesus - this is done before the children open their Christmas gifts. The children should also offer baby Jesus a gift whether it be an offering for Sunday School, obedience to their parents, quote a Bible verse, or to learn a Bible verse daily; pray more or other suggestions from their parents. This really keeps the reason for the season in focus for children.
Your story is absolutely heartwarming! You're a real inspiration!
what a wonderful idea stacey
I hope there was some indication that the people living there observed Christmas. I'd hate to ram Christmas down the throat of some nice Jewish or Muslim family that just needed a break from the constant bombardment from our holiday. (Yes, our holiday is a bombardment whether we admit it or not. Imagine how non-celebrants must feel.)
Otherwise, it is a terrific idea! One of the best treatments for depression is to help someone else.
