>I read this on another blog . . . so good I might have to steal it! Especially as the kids get older and have a more “mature” understanding of Christmas . . . hint hint!

I have so many traditions I love about christmas.But one that we more recently started comes to mind.I have been concerned about how much Jesus’ birth has become all about the presents.So we have started a new tradition,to minimize the gifts and give them more meaning.We do 3 presents in honor of the gifts given to baby Jesus.#1.Gold-we give them 1 thing that they have REALLY wanted.#2.Frankincense-something for their bodies,such as clothes,perfume,lotion..ect.#3.Myrrh-something for their spiritual life,such as a bible,study books or for my little kids,c.d.s with christian music.
