Christmas 1959 Alexandria, VA , Mom, Dad, Wayne, Davy, Roberta
When I was a teenager my dad began the tradition of attending a candlelight church service on Christmas Eve. My mom would stay home with the two little boys. The older kids would attend the midnight service. After the service we would rush home and finish decorating the tree and wrapping presents. Our family carried on the observance of Christmas Eve in the same way after Chris and I were married; but instead of staying up until midnight we find a service in the afternoon or early evening.
Here is a link to one of my favorite Christmas Eve sermons. Or click on the title below.
