Christmas Traditions

     Ryan and I have no real set traditions for Christmas. I would like to establish some now that we're married. It will be difficult to do some of them since we still live with the in-law's, but we'll do as many as we can.

Pre-Christmas Eve/Day Traditions 
     1. Put up the Christmas tree and decorate the house while listening to
       Christmas music.
   2. Put up the Christmas lights outside.
   3. Bake a cake for Jesus’ birthday.
   4. Advent (I saw a family do this this year)

Christmas Eve Traditions
     1. Go to the Christmas Eve Candlelight service.
         (I love this!!)
     2.  Watch a cute Christmas movie with hot cocoa and read
         Matthew 1:18-25.

Christmas Day Traditions
4.              1. Read the story of Jesus when we wake up from Matthew 2
              and Luke 2.
5.              2. Give praise to the Lord in prayer.
6.              3. Eat breakfast and give Coco a Christmas treat
              (making sure he’s in his Christmas sweater ;)
7.              4. Give our gifts to one another.
8.              5. Play with our gifts!
