My favorite Christmas tradition has involved my work with our church youth group. Every year we adopt a family for Christmas. Teaching our youth the importance of humble giving through the collection and preparation of gifts, and the delivery to the family. The kids are blown away by the excitment they see in the family when we deliver the gifts. They have a new understanding that blessings are received in both giving and receiving, and every time are humbled by seeing such great need. It is a life changing experience every year. As I shop for gifts each year, the memories of these visits to the very poor of our community, helps me to keep in perspective the true meaning of Christmas. God Bless You this Christmas!
having our own 12 days of christmas where we open a ‘gift’ each day leading up to christmas. When we dont have 12 presents, we start where we need to. also, each of my 3 girls wear a different santa had each year, revealed only at christmas!

Well my family tradition is simple but its our thing. Every x-mas eve we allow the kids to open one gift; usually a small one. We prepare x-mas dinner, make sugar cookies with sparkles, and watch the all time x-mas movie;" A Christmas Story." LOL we love that movie. Looking forward to it this year!
The major celebration on Christmas Eve is the Holy Supper in our family. Holy Supper celebrations started with arrival of first star in evening sky. This star stands for the trekking of three wise men.All food was cooked by all members of the family.
The head of family brings sheaf of wheat, which is usually does our grandpa. It signifies the spirit of grandfather. The father is the first to say Christmas greeting

I miss waking up SUPER early Christmas morning and waking my parents up with my older brother. Now that we’re older and are starting families of our own, I’m enjoying my childs face when she sees the tree and presents left for her at Great Grandpas house where all the family gathers now. Next year I hope she and her new sibling will be waking us Christmas morning to start a new generation of excitement for Santa…
This is the best place to find gifts for family and friends and something for myself!!
I love transforming the house into a cozy christmas wonderland. I love watching the kids faces as we unpack all of our Christmas Treasures and find places around the house to place each item. I love making cookies and wrapping presents. Singing Christmas songs and taking the time to enjoy the company of good friends and family.

The most amazing place I’ve ever been! I just moved here and visited the Mercantile about a month ago.
My favorite tradition for Christmas is: watching others be blessed, to see their eyes light up, to experience the joy, the expressions they feel on this blessed day we celebrate the birth of our savior.
Note: When I came to the Mercantile for the first time; I noticed the manager/owner (whomever it was), walking around the Mercantile in prayer, that’s all I needed to see to know thats where I’ll return.
Thank you Country Mercantile for standing for more than just your product!!!
Love to spend time with family, baking goodies and going to look at all of the Christmas lights!
