A Few Christmas Articles Worth Reading

Submitted by Jennifer Power

In case you haven’t noticed…Christmas is coming! It is only 16 days until the big day arrives! Last week I wrote about the pressure Christian parents may feel around this beautiful, emotional, hectic time of year where we try to cram an awful lot of wonderfulness into one short month.

This week, I want to share some links to some thought-provoking articles about Christmas which cause me to pause and reflect. We do not do all (or even most) everything in these articles, but I appreciate the fresh perspectives and hope to continue to learn from other writers’ thoughtful ideas.

Hope you enjoy! Happy Advent and Merry Christmas!
