My family loves to celebrate Christmas by focusing on Christ. We pull together for the month before Christmas and share a special time around the table each evening, lighting candles, reading the Bible, singing songs, and even eating Christmas goodies! We call this celebration Advent. We also focus on Christ in Christmas by doing what I call “Christmas School.” I am including a list of Bible reading schedules you can use in the evening with your family, or during the school day if that works better for your schedule.
I am also including many different resources which can be used to supplement your Advent or Christ in Christmas celebration and bring Christmas into your days. If you homeschool, many of these activities can be used during the day to augment or replace your school activities with school activities that focus on Christ. It is a pleasure to share my Christ in Christmas Ultimate Resource List for families with you. (Make sure you scroll to the end for our GIVEAWAY!)
Also, I’d just like to mention that my family and I own and have used 80% of these resources at one time or another!
