Opening Presents, Advent Activity 22

Opening presents! It is almost that time! 3 more days till the 25th of December. Are you excited? How about your children/grandchildren? I know I am. We usually open our presents to one another on Christmas Eve and do Santa presents on Christmas morning. What are your traditions? All around the world everyone has different traditions. In Finland it is traditional to take a sauna bath before Santa’s visit (sounds lovely to me!) In New Zealand, Christmas comes in the summer so they go out on the beach and have a picnic.

1 Corinthians 11:2 “It pleases me that you continue to remember and honor me by keeping up the traditions of the faith I taught you.” This Christmas will you open the most precious gift God sent you by letting Jesus into your heart and giving you eternal life in heaven? He waits for you to open your gift with a joyful heart.

Day 22 of the countdown to Christmas Scripture Matthew 2:1-2 After Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea, during the time of King Herod; Magi from the East came to Jerusalem and asked, “Where is the one who has been born King of the Jews? We saw his star when it rose and have come to worship him.”

  1. we spread our present giving out over a few days so it’s not as overwhelming, and the kids actually get to play with things – it’s so great to have little kids at this time of year x
