Christmas

Christmas Choir

There are lots of neighborhood choirs if you don't have one at your church. This is a great family activity!

When I was a kid, a group of neighbors would organize one night and we'd go to all the other houses on the street, singing for everyone. The little neighborhood Christmas choir was actually organized by this great Jewish fellow who lived on our street! His daughter was a friend of mine.

As I recall, most of the fun neighborhood activities were coordinated by this guy, including all the Christmas festivities.

Now, living in the middle of a big city, we don't have that kind of comaraderie with our neighbors. I miss it! Maybe we'll go caroling this year and ask some neighbors to join us!

Christmas Songs - find the lyrics to all those songs you'll be singing!

What I love about Christmas
 
stringing beads for the tree
the smell of turkey roasting
making paper chains with the kids
wrapping presents
finding the perfect gift for someone I love
Christmas carols
nativity scenes
decorating the tree
finding the perfect Christmas tree
hanging the special bulbs
painting ornaments with the kids
unwrapping a gift from a young child
Christmas cards
remembering Christmases past
eggnog
hot chocolate
untangling lights
realizing I came up with the perfect light-rolling technique last year, so I don't HAVE to untangle any lights!
bragging to my husband that the lights aren't tangled
searching for that ONE light that doesn't work
comparing our house's decorations to our neighbors'
driving through Griffith Park to view the light display
Santa's lap at Winter Wonderland
donating a toy to a needy child
helping the gift wrapping of donated toys
