Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son,
and they shall name him Emmanuel,
which means “God is with us.”
We’ve made our way through Advent and the joy of the Christmas season awaits! We pray that you have a very merry and blessed time celebrating Christ’s birth with the ones you love.
As you go about your festivities in the days ahead, we’d like to share some of our show hosts’ favorite Christmas traditions! Enjoy.
“Singing Adeste Fidelis (O Come All Ye Faithful) or Puer Natus in Bethlehem (A child is born in Bethlehem) after Midnight Mass.” – Fr. Rocky, Family Rosary Across America® and Executive Director/CEO at Relevant Radio®
“My mother would always bake a birthday cake to celebrate the birth of Christ.” – Drew Mariani, The Drew Mariani ShowTM
“Decorating our family Christmas tree each Advent is a special time for my siblings to come together with my parents and reminisce over the special ornaments each of us have received over the years to celebrate the light of Christ in the world. Extended family members and friends anticipate our annual tree decorating as it gives them a sense of belonging and inheritance each Christmas.” – Timmerie Geagea, Trending with Timmerie
“On Christmas mornings, when my sons were kids, pranking them with gag gifts (like a bag of potatoes) wrapped in the package of a very expensive, nonexistent gift (like an X-Box game system). Good times.” – Patrick Madrid, The Patrick Madrid Show
“The Christmas Eve Polish tradition of breaking/sharing the oplatek ( thin wafer bread with the Nativity scene imprinted on it) with family.” – John Harper, Morning Air®
“I spend Christmas with my daughter and her family, who live nearby.” – Paul Sadek, DaybreakTM
“Carols before the Night Mass at Christmas.” – Fr. Richard Simon, Father Simon SaysTM
From your entire Relevant Radio family, Merry Christmas!
