Christmas is one of our favorite holidays in the Algor house. This year, I actually decorated the inside of our house before we left for Thanksgiving so that we could begin our favorite season the minute we walked in the door from New York. We were there for 12 days, so it was a special treat to walk back into our home and an added bonus to see our beautiful decorations.
We decided that this year we would introduce and add an Advent calendar to our list of traditions. We waited until now because we wanted the boys to be more aware of what Christmas was truly about and how they can serve others, just like Jesus did. Our advent calendar won’t hold little trinkets or candies. Instead in its pockets, it will have easy things the kids can do to serve others, like taking Christmas cookies to our fire stations. We will also have special days to do our favorite things to get into the spirit of Christmas like baking cookies and watching special Christmas movies.
Of course, the story of Jesus will always be at the center of our Christmas.
I hope you have a wonderful Holiday Season!
Until the Mission is Complete,
