Christmas Alphabet

Thanksgiving is over and Christmas is right around the corner! To try and keep things in perspective, I decided I wanted to focus on the story of Christ’s birth throughout the month of December. And since we’re also working on the ABCs, I figured I may as well just combine the two. Each day in December we will focus on a different letter. We’re skipping the letter X because it’s always a stretch to make that one work. And this way we don’t have to double up on letters. Each word comes with a scripture reference from the King James Version of the Bible.

The story will be told out of order, but with our Christmas Eve devotional, all the parts will come together. I think this will be a great way for my son and I to delve more deeply into the details of Christ’s birth in a way we wouldn’t be able to through a re-enactment.

Here’s our list! If you’d like a printable version, click here: Christmas ABC Printout.

It was hard to narrow down just one word/phrase for each letter! For example, ‘S’ could cover Shepherds, Stable, Star, etc. What other words would you include in a Christmas Alphabet?
