Time honored tradition
Over the Christmas period, there’s nothing more traditional than attending a church service with family and other loved ones. After all, religion is what Christmas is all about. It’s easy to get caught up with the hustle and bustle of presents, decorations and everything else that comes with the Christmas territory but it’s also important to go back to basics and remember what the festive season is based on. And even if you’re not a regular mass goer, the door is always open for you to spend some quality time, either by yourself or with your family at a church service in the community. Over the holidays there will be a number of services in churches of different denominations. Carol services are always a popular choice for families who enjoy singing festive hymns in celebration of the big day. And whether you go on Christmas Day itself or over the holiday period, you’ll be sure to have those carols in your head for days to come after singing them. A number of churches will have the nativity scene on display and this is a fantastic way of explaning to children the origins of Christmas Day and why it’s so special. So no matter how you spend Christmas this year, make sure to attend a church service if you’ve an evening to spare and reflect on the true meaning of Christmas.
