Christmas Travel


A lot of you will be traveling today or will have loved ones traveling to you.  It is a busy stressful time.  If you are having people come to visit you are in the last throes of preparation for their arrival.  We are cleaning the house, baking pies, cornbread for dressing, cookies, other holiday fare.  If you are in the car you are watching traffic and if traveling with kids working to keep them entertained and/or maintain sanity.  We used to measure the distance of trips by the number of videos it took.

This traveling thing has deep roots does it not?  The first Christmas was preceded by travel.  Joseph and Mary were going home to Bethlehem for a census. Luke 2:1 – 5.  Essentially, that is what we are doing.  We are either traveling to a family gathering or are preparing for those to come to us.

As you travel or prepare to receive travelers this weekend, take some time to reflect and share with your kids on how even this part of this celebration echoes what Joseph and Mary experienced that first Christmas.
