I bought this book and have so been enjoying it! Im looking forward to sharing it with my family this Christmas season. She has seven traditions that you can share with your family to help them think about the true meaning of this time of year. The first tradition begins with Mary and it so neat because one of the things she does is she just puts out the different nativity characters one at a time to help build the suspense and help bring the focus to Jesus. So Mary comes first and her Tradition is Pondering. To ponder what she was thinking that amazing night when the little baby Jesus was born. She suggests making hearts for the Christmas tree or heart cookies to eat that night when you share Marys experience with your family. One thing I was thinking I would like to do is create Mary's star path from the book All Year Round by Ann Druitt and Christine Fynes-Clinton and Marije Rowling . Isnt this time of year just so fun!!! Yea I love it!!! Have a Happy Day!!!
