What makes Christmas "special" for us? We'll tell you!
Hosting family or friends for a meal and being able to use my Christmas dinnerware! ~Michelle Blood
Ever since I had the opportunity to help deliver shoe boxes to kids in Romania a few years ago, filling up Operation Christmas Child boxes is that much more special. ~Katie Burke
I love the lyrics of Christmas-nothing like James Taylor sweetly singing "Who sends this song upon the air, to ease the soul that's aching? To still the cry of deep despair and heal the heart that's breaking." Or, BeBe & CeCe Winans simply exulting "Born is the King-MY King"! ~Peggy Campbell
A huge Christmas morning breakfast with the fam! ~JC Colon
Christmas music, Christmas movies, and maybe some Christmas surfing? ~Mark Conner
I love watching old Christmas movies during the holiday season. ~Sheri Cooper
I'll be off to see "A Christmas Carol"-a 31-year tradition! ~Evelyn Gibson
Negotiating with Santa and his lawyers to be moved from the "naughty" list to the "nice" list. ~Micah Haughey
Spending time with my children and my AWANA Sparks children sharing about the real reason for the season. I use FamilyLife's "What God Wants for Christmas" where we open each of the 7 little boxes with nativity scene characters until we open the last one-a mirror to reflect what God wants for Christmas is "us!" ~Lee Ann Jackson
Teaching my children to sing Handel's Messiah and introducing them to that wonderful elixir of the season...eggnog. ~Robert Jacobsen
I love filling and exchanging stockings. ~Carolyn Kim
I used to love going with my father to give gifts and present the gospel to a leper colony in China. ~KiYong Kim
Why is the 26th important to the Lee family? We wait until the day after Christmas to purchase and exchange gifts - you get better deals! ~Jery Lee
My family is what makes my Christmas special each year. ~Jennifer Perez
The Christmas decorations, not the decorating, but the decorations. ~Kathy Randall
I love Christmas caroling with my family and friends.
Reading of the Christmas story from Luke . . . accompanied by Al's tacos! ~Jim Sanders
Getting our Christmas tree (and naming him). ~Anna Sinclair
Because my middle name is Joy and I passed that middle name on to my daughter, Lisa, I look for a JOY ornament (or decoration) for each of us every year. This year I will be buying THREE Joy ornaments with the arrival of our new granddaughter, Ashley Joy!
So what makes Christmas special for you??
