Family Minute #3

Some Things Never Change

Sometimes change is good. But during the holidays, we take comfort in the familiar — traditions that strengthen our family bond. In my home, you will always find the kids baking cookies, creating Christmas ornaments & other crafts, and being an "Elf" to another needy family. On Christmas Eve, we share the story of the first Christmas. As my children grow and have their own families, they’ll have these traditions to hold onto. So in the busyness of the holiday season, create your own traditions. Because even when all of the other presents have been forgotten, traditions are a gift you can open again and again.

Remember your family first.

Wish Me a Merry Christmas

0 merry thoughts
This woman was frustrated by the hearing "Happy Holiday's" instead of "Merry Christmas" so she started a business/fundraising project making buttons that say "It's OK, wish me a Merry Christmas!" Churches have been buying the buttons in bulk and giving them to members and others are using them as fundraisers.

The Wish Me A Merry Christmas Campaign is a loving and actionable grassroots campaign that appeals directly to retailers to put Christmas back in the holidays.

The angel of the Lord announced that the good news of Christ’s birth would be proclaimed to all people (Luke 2:10), and we seek to keep spreading that good news, indeed! Upon reaching our "Million Button Milestone, the Wish Me A Merry Christmas Campaign will directly contact the top 30 retailers in our nation to ask them to honor the wishes of their customers and wish us a “Merry Christmas” once again!
