Christmas will be here soon

Christmas will be here soon, with its Christmas trees, bright lights and shopping sprees! What many people forget, though, is that this celebration has a deeper meaning behind all the fun, food and family gatherings.
Join us throughout the month of December, as we look at the true meaning of Christmas in our daily short videos based on the books Advent for Kids and Advent: Hearing the Good News in the Story of Jesus’ Birth.
