Christmas Eve Traditions

Happy Birthday Jesus!

Happy Birthday Jesus!

In our home we switched up traditions a few years ago to get a little peace back into our Christmas worship…and also to enjoy our Christmas Eve traditions a little more.  See we get the house ready, make our Christmas Angel Food Cake, then we have a nice dinner, light the Christ Candle and sing to our Lord and Savior.  Truthfully the house is so full of nervous energy I am amazed everything gets done and enjoyed!

After dinner we set the family gifts out under the tree, say our prayers…and the kids get off to bed so the good St. Nicholas of Myra (the good Bishop who smacked Arius) pay us a visit!  Oh I mean Santa Claus in the red suit.  Except for a last minute requirement to find eggs (thank you Bunn family for letting us share your egg coop bounty at 945PM!) everything was perfect.

More later…but all is good in the Wojtkun Home!  Our Lord is made incarnate!  He is ready to show us the word spoken and expressed in creation since before time began!  What a wonderful, wonderful blessing to the world!  I also love how my children love each other.

So enjoy a glimpse into our home, celebration of Christ’s birth, and understand my poor wife only looks a little green because Baby E is doing well and will make his name known next August.
