Though Christmas has become commercialized over the years, Proverbs 22:6 reminds us to “Train up a child in the way he should go, even when he is old he will not depart from it.” As they grow, the root of all that is good about the season will remain. Include stories that tell of the Biblical version of Christ’s birth, for God’s Word read allowed welcomes His presence. It’s not necessary to shy away from fun quips and other holiday stories, as long as the right message remains front and center.
