Christmas tradition book!

I have been sewing for weeks and have some knots in my back that are going to require a masseuse. Yikes!
Anyway, so I am taking a break from that and going to post about some fun Christmas gift and craft ideas that don't involve a needle and thread.
First up, Family Christmas tradition books.
I posted about these here on my personal family blog last year, and thought I would share.A few years ago one of my best friends called me up and said she was putting together a book of traditions for Christmas. She had a large number of people submit their favorite family Holiday traditions along with their families favorite Christmas movies, recipes, crafts, stories and songs.
She took all of the information and turned it into a fantastic book. There is a page or two for every day and each day has a scripture, a story, a song, a craft and a treat idea/recipe. This pic is from the 2nd day where we learned about the nativity and made a marshmallow baby Jesus wrapped in swaddling clothes (taffy). My kids thought this book was just the coolest thing last year and we made sure not to miss a single day. This is the last day where we put on our family tradition of the nativity with all the grand kids and grandpa reading it from the scriptures.
The best part is that in the back there is a whole section of kids games and a list of movies and several pockets full of everyones favorite Christmas music!!

This would be a pretty inexpensive gift and would definitely be a part of the Christmas memories for years to come!



Wow! This is such a neat idea. I would love one of these books. You don't happen to sell them or or a pdf to make my own by chance? Great job!


Would love more info on this book. Could you pass along my email (merryagray@yahoo.com) to your best friend so I could find out more info on this? Please???!!!


I would love to have a copy of this file. Is that possible??? My email is quailene@gmail.com. Thank you!


I would love a copy too please! tiffanynorton@frontier.com , Thank you!


Are you posting a pdf or do we need to give you an email address? I love this idea, but I'm not quite creative enough to do it on my own! If you are sharing, could you please send me a copy...we are trying to come up with more ideas on making it more of a Christ centered Christmas instead of presents and Santa centered. Thanks!

What a great idea. I've been looking for some great ideas to bring Christ into Christmas for my son. I grew up with the typical traditions of santa and decorating the tree. My husband isn't too crazy about them and I'm trying to keep the spirit of christmas, but making it centered around christ for my son.. Would love some more info about the book you made superm0mmi@yahoo.com
