Baby Jesus Basket
We started a new tradition this year that I read about somewhere. We had a basket that we prepared for Baby Jesus by putting "hay" (actually strips of paper) into the basket. Several times throughout December we each put a handful of hay into the basket and talked about a gift we have either given or been given. We prepared the basket so that on Christmas morning Baby Jesus could be placed into it - the greatest gift we've ever been given.Baby Jesus in the basket under the Christmas tree. This was a neat tradition that I think we will continue. It got us and the kids a little more focused on Jesus, which is always good.
