Our Christmas Morning Celebration
Tell the world what you have found here!

Early in our marriage we established a meaningful, yet simple Christmas morning celebration that we still enjoy today! We enjoy Bible reading, Christmas carol singing, “Happy Birthday to Jesus,” cinnamon rolls, and presents. In that order.

Christmas Day starts with a special devotional. We read Luke 2, the Christmas Story, interspersed with carols.

I make homemade cinnamon rolls and frost them with cream cheese icing. After our Christmas morning devotions, I get them out, put candles in, and light them. The whole family sings “Happy Birthday” to Jesus and then the youngest family member blows out the candles. 

As the birthday song ends, we are reminded that Christmas is a birthday. One more Christmas carol and it’s time to eat breakfast while we opened presents.

Our Christmas Morning Devotion

Here is our very simple Christmas morning devotion. We basically read Luke 2 with singing carols between verses. I will list the Scripture passages and carols for you from beginning to end. Enjoy!
