Did you know that many of our Christmas traditions have Christian origins?
I didn’t know these origins until a few years ago when we started to read more about why we do what we do to celebrate Christmas.
Here are just a few:
-The Yuletide Log comes from the missionary Boniface and his work of converting pagans to Christianity
-St. Thomas Day (December 21) is a day of well-wishing and Christmas cards are a way of celebrating St Thomas Day
Advent is a glorious time to tie family bonds as you discover the Christian origins of Christmas symbols and traditions. I’ve included many Christmas Traditions and ways you can celebrate them as a family.
The Epiphany section gives you the words to 12 Days of Christmas song, as well as special activities to do for each of the Twelve Days of Christmas.
Wondering what I’m talking about?
The Twelve Days of Christmas are not before Christmas, but AFTER Christmas, concluding on January 6th. I think this section is worth the price of the book alone since most don’t even know what Epiphany is.
