Favorite Christmas Memories #6: The Christmas Story
For our family we also do a couple of other favorites. We attend Behold the Gift at the Oakland Stake center. It's the Nativity told with modern dance. Just with the book you're reminded with all the joy that Jesus brought to our earth. He is our Savior. I love how the ending is so happy and reminds us how He makes us happy.
We go to the local Creche exhibit and revel in creches from different countries. It's fun to see how different countries see how it happened... but it's all centering on that amazing story. We also then go to dinner at the Palo Alto Creamery... but that's just a bonus. :)
We also go to the local Baptist Nativity. It's A-mazing. They do a reenactment of the nativity complete with camels, sheep roman guards. You're really there. You realize how HE brings us joy. HE is the reason for the season and how WE are that lucky that he loves us.
Anyway, what does your family do to remember the reason for the season?
