Christmas Traditions - A Call Homeward

Christmas traditions and the love that creates them tie us together as a family. They form a bond strong enough to draw us back home for Christmas even though we may live a thousand miles away. Don't we all love Christmas?

Children especially love the magic that surrounds this season. It captivates them. They greatly anticipate sharing their favorite family activities with each other. Oh! The fun these traditions bring. Oh! The howls that come when even one of these favored traditions is left undone."Mom, why didn't we make any Christmas ornaments this year?" or "Dad, why didn't I get to help you string the outdoor Christmas lights."(It didn't matter to him that we had two straight weeks of below zero weather that year.)

...So, they are reinstated the following season. In this way, we continue on from year to year forming our very own family Christmas traditions. These traditions, that we look forward to as a child, are the same ones that draw us back home as an adult. All of us want our beloved adult "children" to come home for Christmas, even if they are married with children of their own.

Let's create some memories...
