THE HISTORY OF THIS CHRISTMAS TRADITION
One of my favorite traditions as a child was our 25 Days of Christmas. My parents would gather all 7 of us children in the living room, light our advent candle, pull our Bible and read a few verses about Christ.
This tradition was was special because it helped my family slow down and focus on the reason for the season.

EASY NEIGHBOR CHRISTMAS GIFT IDEA
One year, I prepared this 25 Days of Christ scripture list plus a DIY Advent Candle well before Thanksgiving. Just before December came around, we delivered these Christ-Centered Christmas gifts to our close neighbors and friends.
The advent candles cost less than $1 to make (especially if you use coupons at the craft store). Roll up a printed scripture list with the candle, tie with baker’s twine, and you have a simple, yet meaningful Christmas gift.
