Merry CHRISTmas and Happy Birthday, Jesus

A great neighbor of ours got us started a few years back with this fun tradition.  Before the kids can open any Christmas presents on Christmas morning, we reflect on the true meaning of Christmas, the birth of Jesus Christ.  Each kid lets a Happy Birthday Balloon go.  We always make a trip to the Dollar Tree a day or two before Christmas.  A lot of the time we grab a few extras and share them with our friends. 

If we share them with our friends, we attache a fun little card explaining our tradition, and including a bible verse about Jesus' birth.

This is a picture of the kids letting them go last year. 

Even if your dollar store isn't open at this hour, you can grab one from your grocery store florist.

Whatever you choose to do to celebrate Christ's birth this year, we hope you have a very blessed time with family and reflect on a baby in a manger.
