There are so many wonderful websites dedicated to the rich heritage of Catholic Christmas traditions that any attempt we might make would pale in comparison. Instead, Catholic Home and Garden presents our favorite Christmas links. We hope that in your Catholic home, you will incorporate some of them so that they will become treasured traditions for your family as well.      

 

The Story of

Christmas

from the Gospel of Luke

Wish Me A Merry Christmas Campaign

With so many attacks on Christmas in the last few years, many employees are terrified of wishing you a Merry Christmas for fear of being fired. Here's a great way to let them know it's OK. The company also offers parish fundraisers.

Our Favorite Christmas Links

One of our favorite resources for families throughout the liturgical year is

Catholic Culture

They offer a wealth of solidly Catholic information, ideas for activities, recipes and so much more.

We encourage you to visit the links below to explore the wealth of Catholic Christmas traditions there.

A note about the business that supports us year round and our "foolish" decision during the Advent and Christmas season ...

Most businesses, whether they are Catholic or not, work around the clock to take advantage of the Christmas shopping season. Traditionally, it is a make-it-or-break-it time of year when sales can make the difference between staying in business or finding another line of work.

Last year, Catholic Home and Garden's business end of things made a decision that is foolish by the standards of the world. On Saturday, December 15th (the Feast of St. Christina, my name saint), we stopped stop taking orders so that we, as a Catholic family, could focus on our prayer life.

In short, we decided to worship Christ and not the dollar.

This year, we made another decision. We have built links to gifts that directly benefit religious orders and others that will help your family become self-sufficient in these trying economic times.

While we will not be selling our own goods, you can help us to continue our work by visiting our shopping pages where you will find links to larger companies where you can do your Catholic Christmas shopping.

No Christmas Page would be complete without links to Christmas Music. Until  this year, my greatest joy in prayer came from service as a Catholic music director and cantor.

My former partner, Elizabeth, an exceptionally talented organist and keyboardist, is preparing for the birth of her first child, and I have decided that my singing days are over.  Nonetheless, I've placed my favorite hymn here so I can enjoy it whenever I visit my own website! I hope you enjoy it, too.

I Wonder As I Wander Lyrics

I wonder as I wander out under the sky
How Jesus the Savior did come for to die
For poor on'ry people like you and like I;
I wonder as I wander out under the sky

When Mary birthed Jesus 'twas in a cow's stall
With wise men and farmers and shepherds and all
But high from God's heaven, a star's light did fall
And the promise of ages it then did recall.

If Jesus had wanted for any wee thing
A star in the sky or a bird on the wing
Or all of God's Angels in heaven to sing
He surely could have it, 'cause he was the King
