My Favourite Christmas Tradition

My very favorite thing we do on Christmas day is that we read the Christmas story from the Bible together as a family before we open any presents. We usually hand the Bible around and have several of us read different parts from Luke and Matthew.

On Christmas Eve we do a family game (which is wrapped as a present) so we have the same tradition there.

It's amazing how much of the Christmas story you can get through with a few seperate readings if you just do them each before whatever events or traditions you have. We usually read everything there is to read from the gospels about the birth of Christ on the 24th and 25th.

Well, there you have it, my favourite Christmas tradition.
