Got Fruit - You'll love these pairs!

We asked The Urban Alternative family to share some of the activities and traditions they do with their families during Christmas to focus their hearts and minds on Jesus in the midst of a busy season—and you delivered.

We come from all around the world, from different backgrounds and experiences, but one thing unites us all: our love for Jesus. Enjoy this virtual album, full of Christ-centered holiday traditions from the TUA family, and be encouraged. You may just find a new tradition of your own to try out this year.

Christmas for my family and I is extra special. I grew up this way but now we get to make our own traditions. That is waking up and spending Christmas together as a family. Families don't always get to spend all days of the week together and eat together so we do this in a big way on Christmas, from breakfast to dinner. It's extra special!
