Christ-Centered Christmas Traditions From Around the World
When it comes to Christmas traditions, there are as many different ones as there are families in the world. But one thing they all have in common is that they celebrate the true reason for the season—Christ's birth.
Some of our favorite Christ-centered Christmas traditions come from around the world. Here are a few of them:
In Italy, families gather together on Christmas morning to open presents, eat a large feast, and read the story of Christ's birth from the Bible.
In Ecuador, families build miniature houses out of bamboo and palm leaves to represent the stable where Jesus was born.
No matter what your family's tradition is, we can all agree that celebrating Christ's birth is the best part of Christmas!
Why Giving Is More Important Than Receiving at Christmas
Christmas is a time of giving and receiving, but it's important to remember that the emphasis should be on giving. After all, that's what Christmas is all about—the birth of Jesus Christ, who gave everything for us. When we focus on giving to others, rather than simply receiving gifts ourselves, it changes the entire experience Christmas.
It's also a time to reflect on the year that's passed and consider all of the things we're grateful for. This is another important part of Christmas—remembering that even when times are tough, we have so much to be thankful for. So take some time to think about the people in your life who mean the most to you, and take the opportunity to tell them how much they mean to you.
