BEFORE PUTTING THOSE CHRISTMAS CARDS AWAY! Try this review lesson for a child on the reason for Christmas. Show in John 1:17 that Christ and Jesus is the same person. Then let the child find and circle the “Christ” in all the “Christmas” words. It is a little easier to make the connection between Jesus’ birthday and the Christ in Christmas.

About oneta hayes

ABOUT ME Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me. By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before.

    What fun Oneta! I will have to remember this delightful activity when our grand-daughter is a little older and makes a visit to her Oma & Gompee’s house! Hugs!

      When you put away the Christmas decor, gather the excess to be stored and pick up the cards, may you remember. You probably will. Hope for a pleasant experience. When I put mine away the other day, I longed for a child of the right age for this. Two are a bit old – six and eight, two are a bit young, two and three. Next year maybe the older ones can teach the younger. That would be good. 😀
