All the Earth Celebrates His Birth

Look what just came out!
(Click HERE for my Christmas article)
Today the lights are going up, the cards have been sent, and our holiday books have been wrapped to count down the nights until Christmas!  I love getting the rush out of the way in the days leading up to December, using this month to focus instead on the traditions that bind us together as a family and point the light toward Jesus' birth. 
I was thrilled when I was asked to write the Christmas traditions article for "KC Parent's" December issue (for those who aren't familiar with my love of all things Christmas, I once skipped high school to buy a tree, lug it home, and trim it--true story).  Researching the origins of our melting pot traditions opened my eyes to a beauty beyond the twinkling lights and berry speckled holly wreaths.  I'd love to share what I've learned with you, and hope that you will pass on the deeper meaning behind our holiday celebrations.
You can check out the article on KC Parent's website: http://www.kcparent.com/KCParent/10-12-01/Christmas_Traditions.aspx
God bless us everyone, and Happy Christmas!
