25 Christ-Centered Christmas Traditions

First, a disclaimer.  I love Thanksgiving.  I never begin the Christmas season until Advent.  I recently pinned this: But if you’re going to prepare an activity or two for Advent, which begins December 1st this year, you probably want to start thinking about it now. And a second disclaimer:  I don’t mind if you’ve already put … Continue reading
