This is Jack’s first Christmas, which means that Jeff and I get to start our own family traditions with him this year and I am so stinking excited about it! I recently found this video on The Story of This Life’s Facebook page and I instantly knew this was something that I want to do with Jack.
I love the idea of using this as a countdown to Christmas and a way to teach the real meaning of the season. I especially love that the last “gift” is baby Jesus himself, which is really the best gift of all and the reason that we celebrate Christmas in the first place.
I was just about to roll up my sleeves and do some serious digging for all the verses that were used in this video when, guess what…they posted a How-To on their Facebook page listing all the verses they used in the video! (You can find that here.)
I can’t wait to do this with Jack next year!
