A Christ Centered Christmas

We had a lesson on Christmas at church last Sunday (shocking, I know!)  Several ladies shared their Christmas tradition.  I had heard most - half of them were part of our family's traditions too.  

One stood out.  One woman displayed her nativity set, manger and all, under the Christmas tree.  She added a piece to the scene everyday.  It wasn't until all the pieces were displayed that gifts could be placed under the tree.  Their family drew names and everyone received only that one gift.  This family focused on Christmas celebrating the birth of our Savior, even to the extent of singing Happy Birthday on Christmas day.

I would have a hard time with only giving one gift, but I love the idea of keeping the gifts stashed away until just before Christmas and keeping the manger scene under the Christmas tree.
