Looking for a way to keep Christ in Christmas? There are lots of simple Christ-Centered Christmas traditions (see our full list of 25 Christ-Centered Christmas traditions) . But for one of the simplest ways, this post is for you!
This 25 Days of Christ Tradition is a simple way to keep you and your family remember the meaning for the season!
Where this Tradition Started
One of my favorite traditions as a child was our 25 Days of Christ. My parents would gather all 7 of us children in the living room, light the 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.
Perfect for Any Busy Schedule
Despite all that you may have going on during December, this 25 Days of Christ tradition is easy to fit into any busy schedule.
The 25 Days of Christ scripture advent list contains a few verses about a trait of Jesus Christ. Each day as you read these verses, you will learn about Christ. Reading the verses will only take about 5 minutes per night. As you learn about a trait of the Savior, you will grow closer to him and remember why the birth of Jesus was so special.

Simple Neighbor 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.
