Don't Forget THE Reason

It's fun to celebrate Christmas with Santa, giving gifts, going to parties and looking at colorful lights, but of course the main reason our family celebrates Christmas is to celebrate the birth of Jesus. How amazing to think that God would want to leave his perfect home in heaven to be born on earth in the form of a baby - knowing the persecution, pain and sorrow He would soon face. The greatest act of love ever - all of this because He loves us so much and wants us to be with Him for eternity.

Here's a few websites our family likes to visit to remind us of the REAL reason for the season...

The First Christmas - listen to the story on-line

Build a Nativity - Interactive and fun ;-)

Happy Birthday, Baby Jesus! - Post a birthday message to Jesus
