Home-spun Christmas Traditions Blog Carnival at Mentoring Moments

Mentoring Moments is having a Christmas Carnival. They are telling some of their favorite Christmas traditions and asking what are some simple things we do at home during Christmas. Please join us as we reminisce about Christmas past and present. These special memories don’t cost much, yet they enrich our lives in priceless ways.

What are your home-spun Christmas traditions? We’d love to hear about the little things you do at home to make the season special.

Some things we have done are go through drive-thru Nativity Scenes, go through open Christmas Homes, make special goodies all through the season, go to Sunday School Christmas Parties, visit far-away friends and family, help feed the homeless, and participate in a Super Saturdays for children at City of Refuge. These are children who are bused in from the surrounding housing projects. There will be lots of kids in need of attention — some  in need of nothing more than hugs & smiles and comfortable laps to sit on. Some will want to just talk to someone because they don’t get much of that at home.  Others will want to color and draw.  Then there will be all kinds of  indoor sports activities for them that morning.  At some point in the morning we will join them for a kids service conducted by their children’s pastor and the team there. This will be followed by lunch preparations by our team. Once lunch is ready, we will serve it to the children.

  1. Thanks for this great contribution to the blog carnival! Your ministry with City of Refuge sounds wonderful…an encouragement for the children and for you!


  2. It is really cool the way they do it. This particular church has been doing it for 14yrs.
    They give you a tape player to listen to as you drive-thru and look at each scene.
    The tape tells the story of Jesus birth. It’s really cool.
