Celebrating Kings’ Day — 13 Comments

  1. Thanks for this post! We never celebrated Kings’ Day…or really even Advent growing up. We’re doing Advent preparation with our kids, and I’d like to begin doing Kings’ Day as well. Thanks for a peak into what your family does.
    Blessings, Friend!

  2. Wow! Thanks for introducing me to this. We celebrate Advent (25 days leading up to Christmas) and also St. Nicholas Eve on December 6 in addition to the “usual” Christmas Eve/Christmas Day. But I think I will add King’s Day to our celebrations as well. We’ve just gone back to a traditional denominational church from an evangelical free church, and I am so happy that my kids are growing up with a more complete Christian liturgical calendar.

  3. I am glad to heard that someone else is also aware of the three wise man celebration. My family also celebrate that more than Christmas, we see that as the true holidays for us. We do both holidays as we celebrate Santa because we are here in the state’s but we also celebrate The Three Wise Man. It seems hard for some people to come to our house and see that we still have our Christmas tree and decorations until the 7th on January but it is a joy for us. It still hard sometime for us to see that after the 1st of the new year the are no Christmas light around, when we back home sometimes keep them until the 10th but is just the cultural differences. Truly i love the idea of still celebrating the holidays and the kids love to learn about both traditions and I guess for me and my husband is excited to celebrate The Three Wise Man just because the kids are small and they get full of excitement when trying to get fresh grass for the camels, which is very hard to do here when everything is full of snow.
    You made my night with your post and thank you for keeping the traditions alive.

    Happy Holidays

  4. Great ideas! I can’t wait to use some of these! We have the same nativity set. 🙂 I think next year we might have Mary and Joseph take a trip around the room to the manger during Advent, and then have the wise men travel during Christmastide. Fun!

  5. When my kiddos were younger, we made a birthday cake for Jesus. Somehow that tradition died. I now have a 3 year old. I’m going to revive that tradition. Thanks for the reminder to focus on Jesus’ birth during Christmas.

    I’m looking forward to seeing more of your thoughts at Literacy Musing Mondays.

    • Thanks so much, Tami! I’ve found that it is so easy for the most meaningful traditions to die off. I don’t really understand why, but I’ve found they are the ones I have to guard the most diligently. Thanks for stopping by and for your comment.

  6. What a fun tradition for your kids too! I love how you have made sure to make Jesus the focus of your celebration in so many ways. Thank you for sharing with #TheCozyReadingSpot
