Southeast Texas Christians Create Christmas Eve Memories

What kind of Christmas Eve Memories will you create?

Another year has flown by for Southeast Texas Christmas families.

Another SETX Christmas Eve has arrived.

We have so few opportunities to make a lasting impression on our children (eighteen Christmas Eves between birth and adulthood).

Here is a list of popular Southeast Texas Christmas Eve activities:

Feel free to “borrow” any that fit your family:

  • A day without TV. Your kids have probably already seen lots of holiday specials. This is a rare day when many moms and dads are both home all day or in the afternoon together. Why not make it a day you turn the TV off and enjoy some real family time with Christmas music in the background.
  • Decorate cookies
  • Play cards/dominoes
  • Share a secret family recipe and make it together
  • Make mulled cider and share your SETXChristmas eve with friends and neighbors
  • Call relatives who won’t be joining you in Southeast Texas for Christmas this year
  • Everyone wants to know where they came from. Our kids often have no “real” idea of their parents before this moment in time. Get out some family albums and share some stories. If you have family visiting, have grandma or a great uncle chime in.Christmas Eve Service Beaumont Tx, Christmas traditions Southeast Texas, holiday ideas SETX
  • Christmas Eve Service
  • Read the Christmas story (all local Southeast Texas libraries have good children’s version)
  • Introduce yourself to a neighbor. It might be uncomfortable if you’ve lived next to each other for two years or two decades and never really introduced yourself, but Christmas is the perfect time. Drop off a few of your signature Christmas cookies and wish them a wonderful New Year.
  • Join a Southeast Texas Christmas Eve Candlelight Service. Somehow the candlelight really does lend solemnity and majesty to the service (First Baptist Bridge City. Cornerstone Baptist Church Kountze).

Whatever you choose for this Christmas Eve, remember our kids will soon be grown.

We talk about Christmas memories with our children and their friends, and they all remembered time and activities they’d shared with family – a trip to grandma’s, decorating sugar cookies, an attempt at caroling, playing board games.

As Southeast Texas Christian families, it is important to do what we can to give our children the tools we want them to have to thrive in adulthood.

Certainly our faith is one of the things we want to arm them with.

How we spend our Southeast Texas Christmas Eve can help ensure they embrace that faith and that it centers them when they need it most.

Merry Christmas Southeast Texas.
