Each Christmas Eve my mother would always read us the Nativity story from the bible before we went to bed. I can always remember looking forward to hearing it. It was something that her mother did for her when she was a child. When my children were small I continued the tradition and read them the story of Christ's birth. I can only hope that my own children will do the same with their children each year.
Merry Christmas to all of you and may the blessing of the Lord be upon each and everyone of you in the coming New Year!
