Family Christmas Scripture Traditions

Beginning on the first day of December, read one scripture a day with your family. Consider using your family’s talents by adding special musical numbers and singing together. When Christmas arrives you will find you have begun a new family tradition that will increase your knowledge of the Savior. Continue your scripture reading time together each day throughout the year to further strengthen the bonds of your family.
