With cookies to bake, presents to wrap, and decorations to go up, it is easy to lose sight of the reason why we celebrate Christmas – the birth of Jesus Christ. The"CHRISTmas Tree" advent calendar is designed to be a daily reminder of that very special reason.
On the back of each ornament is a verse from the King James version of the Bible about the life of Jesus Christ or one of His teachings. These scriptures are organized on the tree to go backwards chronologically. They start with verses remembering His resurrection on Ornament 1, and end with verses celebrating His birth on Ornament 24.
Once you have read the scripture for the day, the ornament then gets turned over. The front side of each ornament acts as a reminder of what you have read that day. By December 25th the tree will be beautifully decorated with ornaments in time for that special day. This CHRISTmas Tree is a wonderful homemade gift that will keep the busy holiday season more meaningful.
