As soon as 1st of December hits, the family would gather after meals to open the envelope/box that belongs to that particular day. On each day, Sally would have the children's dessert written on the card, along with the name of a book or story from the Bible that the family would read together whilst scoffing dessert. Isn't that just the sweetest?
It got me thinking of the importance and value of having family traditions (so far we only have our afternoon bike rides and Sunday naps!) and how this is one that I'd like to incorporate into our family. I love the idea of getting the family together every night for a whole month and sitting down to enjoy some good food, unwind together and share the true meaning and joy of Christmas with one another.
