How to celebrate those "extra" holidays like Cinco de Mayo #Fcblogger #CelebrateLikeAChristian
Have you ever wondered how to celebrate holidays that aren't part of the "big holidays" family? I'm talking about holidays other than the typical ones we celebrate like Easter, Thanksgiving, Christmas, etc. You know the ones that we all look forward to, follow them on the calendar, and know what they are truly all about. I know I've wondered that myself for a long time. As a Christian I've always been careful because I didn't want partake in celebrating anything that wasn't in line with our beliefs. So like many I've always pretty much just steered clear of all the "extra" holidays on the calendar that I didn't know much about.
Well worry no more, with the book Holiday Living: Using Year-Round Holidays to Build Faith and Family you can read about those "extra" holidays and learn their importance and how it they can be celebrated with Christian style. The author Brenda Poinsett not only tells you about the history of the holidays she also tells you easy-to-use ways you can incorporate those holidays into your family celebrations and lay a foundation of Christian value all at the same time. Sounds like the perfect book for me, and maybe it might just be what you've been looking for too!
