I don’t know about you but my favorite holiday is Christmas! =) As soon as November 1st hits we decorate and get the tree up. There’s just something about Christmas that makes it so special and magical. =) Usually most families have traditions or certain special moments they carry year after year. Our family used to go to my Grandmothers for Christmas Eve to exchange gifts with most of the family and spend time with one another and enjoy different foods. Unfortunately my Grandmother has now passed so our family has now got a new tradition of going out on Christmas Eve to get a hot cocoa and drive around for an hour or so looking at pretty Christmas lights on people’s homes and yards.
We were sent the “Sparkle Box” by Jill Hardie. Jill Hardie and her family began placing a gift for Jesus under the Christmas tree as a way of bringing more meaning to the holiday. The first time they opened His gift, the commercialism of the season melted away and they felt a profound joy and peace.
This hardcover book is absolutely beautiful! The illustrations are colorful and the story behind it kind of choked me up as I read it. I knew it came with a “Sparkle Box” but I had no idea what the meaning of it would turn out to be. We now have our “Sparkle Box” sitting in our tree and filling it as we go day-to-day. This will definitely be added to our family traditions for the holiday! =)
