Ways To Incorporate Christ In Christmas Activities

I know, I know sounds weird.

Christmas IS about Christ many believers tell me.

I…as I mentioned Tuesday, I’m not so sure. I think the intention is there. We WANT it to be about Christ. Sometimes, only pieces are.

But I am finding ways to make SURE He is a part of every single thing I do.

Christmas Tree/Christmas Lights

When Christians first introduced the Christmas tree the tree represented Everlasting life. For quite a time too, the day before Christmas was called, “Adam and Eve,” day. People would look at the tree and teach about God creating the Heavens and the Earth. People would also put apples on the tree to represent Eve’s temptation.

That’s pretty powerful.

If you have a Christmas tree, think of how we are the branches. Each ornament think of how the Holy Spirit produces fruit in us.

The fruits of the Spirit.

Christmas Lights

Think of how Christ is the True Vine, and He shows us how to be the light on the hill.

Baking Cookies/Meal

Think about how we cannot live on bread alone, but on the Word of God.

Wrapping Gifts

For each gift, as you wrap, pray to God. Pray for the person you are wrapping the gift for. Pray for God to touch their life. Pray for what the person is struggling with. Pray for how you could be a witness and blessing for that person.

Pray to God remembering His greatest gift He’s given us.

When Signing/Making Christmas Cards

Think of-

The prophesies and promises of the coming Messiah.

The message of, “Do not fear,” angels told shepherds, and Mary.

The messages Christ spent His entire life on preaching.

The message of hope He gives us from His salvation.


Wherever we are, take time for Him. 

If we proclaim Christmas is about Him, we need to make it about Him.

These are things I’m working on.

  1. I like about the lights and tree. Don’t think I have ever heard it like that. Someone once said as we are wrapping presents that our Savior was wrapped in the manger. Thanks for sharing. Blessings and Merry Christmas!

  2. Great ideas, T.R. Regarding Christmas cards, I also like to add a personal note thanking the person or family to whom the card is addressed for what they bring to my life. A few words of encouragement and love mean so much to me, and I’m sure kind words must edify others as well. What better time to express appreciation than at Christmas?
