A Family Together: Christmas Presence

The word Christmas often brings to mind the word presents. Of course, Christmas IS a time when we give and receive presents. Christmas presents are one of the symbols of the season, which celebrates a very special presence—Jesus in our midst! Here are some other words we associate with the Advent and Christmas Seasons. Using a green highlighter or crayon, mark each word or words in this grid. When you finish, you will have created a familiar symbol of Christmas. Then add final touches to the symbol, especially one at the top!
