As suggested here, I have been thinking about how we might celebrate christmas this year in a manner that is Christ focused. This year more than any other it will be important for us as Sophie has been overwhelmed with Santa Claus at school these last three weeks. To my shame, it has taken until now for me to work out what we will do.
We will be reading through Luke's narrative, with a little of Matthew (I couldn't bear to leave out the Magi). We begin tomorrow, the 19th, and end on the 27th. Each day we will have a reading from the Bible and decorations based on the readings and inspired by these.
