Bible Verses: born in bethlehem

But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah,
Though you are little among the thousands of Judah,
Yet out of you shall come forth to Me
The One to be Ruler in Israel,
Whose goings forth are from of old,
From everlasting. Micah 5:2

Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judea, to the city of David, which is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and lineage of David, to be registered with Mary, his betrothed wife,[a] who was with child. So it was, that while they were there, the days were completed for her to be delivered. And she brought forth her firstborn Son, and wrapped Him in swaddling cloths, and laid Him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn. Luke 2:4-7

write letter to santa
make santa's
mail your santa letter at macy's mailbox

while the kids were having breakfast, they worked on their santa letters

once they finished their letters, the kids began to make their santas

this was another craft that all the kids could do themselves
they each put their own twist on their santas

later in the day we stopped at macy's to mail their santa letters
macy's donates $1 from every letter mailed to the make a wish foundation

do you include santa in your christmas traditions?
** i grew up with a fun santa tradition. you can read about it here.

We do Santa at our house too. I did growing up and seemed to have survived it just fine. :) I have strong opinions on this (and most things to tell you the truth :)) but I'll spare you from having to hear them.
My husband's uncle has us over every year the Sunday before Christmas for a Christmas party and Santa (the same one at the Festival of Trees - he's good!) comes to see the kids. It's fantastic!
