I have to admit, sometimes the commercialization of Christmas gets in the way of the root and meaning for celebrating Christmas– the birth of our Savior, his example and sacrifice for each of us. This year, I want to make sure my children know why we celebrate Christmas and one way of starting that conversation is the nativity story. Here are several activities to help you talk about the true meaning of Christmas!
