As you are celebrating Emmanuel this December, consider taking some time as a family tonight or tomorrow night and Googling “how Christmas is celebrated in __________.”
Fill in the blank with the nation of your choosing. Let your kids choose or choose one with the old rotate-a-globe-and-stop-it-with-a-finger method or maybe you even have friends/family in another part of the world.
Whatever way you select another nation, research how they celebrate Christmas differently than we do in America and incorporate some of those traditions into your own family celebration.
It’ll be fun! And it will continue to cultivate into your family a heart for the nations as well as a global mindset. Which is never a bad thing.
