Some Family Christmas Traditions and Song of the Week

Every family has traditions at Christmas. Movies, cookies, music, weird gift ideas. My family is no different. We have our Christmas traditions and I’d like to share them with you (in no particular order)

  1. Listening to “A Twismas Story.” An olllllllllllddddd Conway Twitty Christmas tape that my grandmother bought in the nineties when she visited Twitty City. Although it’s aged and scratchy, it still works and brings back so many memories
  2. Attending the Christmas Eve Candlelight Service at FBC Adamsville. Even when we served at other churches (even GA), we made time to make it back for this special service.
  3. After the Candlelight Service, we go to Dwayne and Carol Smith’s house for soup, pie, and fellowship. Definitely one of my favorites.
  4. Cutting firewood on Saturday(s) for our fireplace. This was apparently a Brasher tradition that Quinten and I had been missing out on until this year.
  5. Riddles to reveal our respective BIG presents on Christmas morning.
  6.  Christmas at Grandmother’s on Christmas morning.
  7. When I was a kid, the family would look up in the sky for Santa’s flashing light of his sleigh. This was more fun when we’d be driving home from a Christmas get-together and we’d look all over the night sky. I kid you not, one time I saw a flashing light in the shape of a sleigh.
  8. Reading the Christmas story, plus a Christmas-themed book, and then praying before we head to bed on Christmas Eve.

Song of the Week

This is a song from the Conway Twitty Christmas tape I mentioned at the beginning of the blog.

Merry Christmas from the Brashers in the heart of Mud Creek, TN! We wish you a joyous season filled with the love of Christ, the fellowship of the Holy Spirit, and the blessings of our Heavenly Father.


“O come, O come Emmanuel…”
