PINK Saturday

Welcome to PINK Saturday!

Today we were asked to share a Christmas Tradition with you.
For our family Christmas is the CELEBRATION
of Jesus' birth.  HE is the Reason we celebrate because
he IS Gods gift to mankind.  Thus, the reason we give
gifts to each other.


When my daughter was quite tiny we wanted to make sure that
our time of opening presents began with the reading of the 1st
Christmas.


I found this darling POP out page book that was unique and
grabbed my little ones attention.  She is now 18 and
we will continue to read this before we open our gifts.
I hope this will be a tradition that she passes on
to her own family when she has them.

Be sure to stop by our hostess Beverly of How Sweet The Sound
and enjoy visiting the other PINK participants!

MERRY CHRISTMAS everyone!
Lorena

Happy Pink Saturday, Lorena! Great Christmas tradition! We also read the Christmas story every Christmas morning before opening gifts. The Lord is the One we celebrate because He is the one who made the celebration possible! The book is very cute and I'm sure it will be passed down through your family. Thanks for sharing and Merry Christmas to you and your family.

Christmas blessings,
Sandi

Lorena,
Happy Pink Saturday and a blessed Christmas enjoying the traditions of your family. I love the reading of the Book. When my kids were small we had a similar tradition with an Advent calendar that I made that told the story of our Savior. God's Goodness is Everywhere! Blessings Meg

I love that you still read the book even as your child became an adult. We are never too old to hear the story of Jesus birth... Blessings!

Traditions are a wonderful blessing at Christmas. Your daughter will have special memories to pass to her own family someday.

Just wanted to stop by and wish you a very Merry Christmas and all the best in the New Year. Through continued prayers we lift you daily.
