There is nothing quite as precious to me as our family traditions. I cherish the memories we’ve created together, and love that we are strengthening our family through shared experiences. The holidays are the perfect time of year to develop traditions together as a family.

Last year, I stumbled upon The Christmas Angel. The Christmas Angel is a tradition for families that is one part magic and whimsy, one part service to others, and one part a desire to keep Christ at the heart of Christmas. Win. Win. Win.

Each morning in December, your child wakes up and searches the house to find his/her angel. When they find the angle, they’ll find a special angelbookmessage/mission written in gold dust. The book includes several ideas, but you can use your own creativity to come up with tasks/missions for your child that will help the understand the importance of serving others. Make cards, bake cookies, make a sibling’s bed, take flowers to a shut-in – the possibilities are endless.
