Review: Christ-Centered Christmas by Hal & Melanie Young

I heard Hal and Melanie Young speak at a large Homeschool Convention a couple of years ago. They were a great team and had much to share, not only about homeschooling but also about having a large family with many boys. 

I already own their book “Raising Real Men: Surviving, Teaching and Appreciating Boys," and several of their CD resources, so when they put out a call on Facebook for bloggers to review their new Christmas eBook I jumped at the chance.

"Christ-Centered Christmas: Celebrating a Christmas Your Family Will Never Forget

This great all-in-one product includes the words to the Christmas Story and to many Carols. The Christmas Baking section includes a baking spreadsheet, shopping list, menu ideas, and numerous recipes. Among other things, there are chapters on decorating, having an "Ornament of the Year," and Advent.  The Youngs tackle the important question "What About Santa Claus?", explain their views on Gift Giving, and share a family tradition around Epiphany.

I enjoyed reading this eBook and feel it helps us to think about our Christmas traditions and to choose ones that reflect the reason for our celebration. It's a good resource to have on hand and a quick read as you prepare for the Christmas season.
