A Blessed Christmas
A homeschooling family created this thematic unit  about the symbols of Christmas to emphasize the true meaning of the holiday. Material can easily be incorporated into the home or adapted for a classroom environment. See also Names of Jesus and Good Christian Men Rejoice, other Christmas units created by the same family. (Note: Main unit is in Adobe PDF format.)

A Christmas Prayer
Take time to visit this page and read the short, yet eloquent, Christmas prayer of Peter Marshall. The late husband of Christian author Catherine Marshall (author of Christy and A Man Called Peter), Marshall wrote this prayer while serving as chaplain of the U.S. Senate.

Christmas in Cyberspace: A Christian Perspective
This site is the one exception to my "no-links-to-links-pages" policy. While this site is a jump station, it provides a valuable service to the internet community by cataloging and organizing sites related to the true meaning of Christmas--the birthday of Jesus Christ, our Savior.

Christmas Songs
This page provides complete lyrics for more than 50 Christmas carols.

Good Christian Men Rejoice
This unit, created by a homeschooling family, takes an in-depth look at the history and significance of fifteen popular carols. See also Names of Jesus and A Blessed Christmas, other Christmas units created by the same family.

The Legend of the Candy Cane

Ever wonder how the candy cane came to be associated with Christmas? These sites might answer your questions.

MIDI Files of Christmas Carols (Multi-lingual)
A WONDERFUL resource for ESL/EFL students and teachers, this site features words to about thirty Christmas hymns and carols. All songs are available in English and Japanese. Most are also available in Korean--a feature that put this site at the top of my must-include list. A few are also available in German and French.

The Real St. Nick
We've all heard the modern day myths about the little old man in a red suit who "shakes when he laughs like a bowl full of jelly." But who was St. Nick, and how did he ever become a part of Christmas tradition? This article, written by Dr. Ralph Wilson, sheds a little light on the mystery.

Silent Night, Holy Night
Unrelated to the popular carol, this site relates a precious story of a child who understood that Christmas was about giving--not getting. Be prepared, though. This one may bring tears to your eyes!
