Celebrate 31 days of a Christ-filled Christmas season.
For Christians worldwide, the month of December is filled with joy and wonder as we anticipate the celebration of Christ's birth. There is no other time of the year that can compare to the Christmas season for both the young and young at heart.
From December to New Year's Eve, reawaken the wonder, joy, and magic that is Christmas with daily scripture and inspirational readings of stories behind popular Christmas traditions, carols and movies. Enjoy a wealth of fun activities to help make the most of the season, including heartwarming holiday recipes and homemade gift ideas.
With this soon-to-be-cherished holiday devotional, best-selling author Ace Collins will capture your imagination and help to make each day of December more memorable and meaningful to you, and those you love, by shining a light on the real spirit of the season.
I love Christmas. The carols. The movies. The music. The feeling. Our family Christmas ornament exchange. Sometimes, though, I get so swept up in the season that I forget the reason for Christmas—the birth of Jesus Christ. Over the past few years, I've been more intentional about celebrating Advent, which has helped keep my focus on the true meaning of Christmas. One tool I plan to use this year is The Most Wonderful Time of the Year.
This book is a 31-day devotional, spanning the month of December. Each day contains a devotional, a Christmas carol or hymn and the story behind it, and a recipe for a Christmas treat or homemade gift. I especially enjoyed learning the history of different carols; it's amazing how many songs we sing without actually understanding their meaning! (Look up "Good King Wenceslas" sometime. So fascinating!)
Though this is a Christmas devotional, Collins clearly ties together Christmas and Easter. I appreciate that he points people to the cross and Jesus' death and resurrection, giving the complete story. The Most Wonderful Time of the Year is a book that I'm sure to pull out year after year, and I believe it will be a great addition to my Christmas celebration. 5 stars.
