One of the perks of a big family is having lots of people to build memories and traditions with over the years. And then more people join the family with marriage and babies, and there are even more options for traditions!
We’re sharing 25 traditions we Crouch sisters have enjoyed or will be enjoying with our families this year. These are good ones, you guys! Each day we’ll give you more details about these fun and special ways to celebrate family, peace, and most of all the birth and life of our Savior Jesus Christ.
To start off the month, we’d like to share these wise words from Fred, the nephew of that old miser Ebeneezer Scrooge:
But I am sure I have always thought of Christmas time, when it has come round—apart from the veneration due to its sacred name and origin, if anything belonging to it can be apart from that—as a good time; a kind, forgiving, charitable, pleasant time; the only time I know of, in the long calendar of the year, when men and women seem by one consent to open their shut-up hearts freely, and to think of people below them as if they really were fellow-passengers to the grave, and not another race of creatures bound on other journeys. And therefore, uncle, though it has never put a scrap of gold or silver in my pocket, I believe that it has done me good, and will do me good; and I say, God bless it!”
–Charles Dickens, A Christmas Carol
May God bless your Christmas season!
