Christmas Song Countdown- Day 15 O Come O Come Emmanuel

Another great song for our family to learn together.  I love how doing this has been impacting my kids!  They are asking questions about the songs, singing them in the car, teaching them to friends!

O come, O come, Emmanuel
And ransom captive Israel
That mourns in lonely exile here
Until the Son of God appear
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel.

We will be singing this song as well as talking about the meaning of Emmanuel, God with us.  Isn’t that awesome that God is with us?  We will talk about how He is with us when we go to school, when we are sleeping, sad, afraid, joyful!

Our family fun activity is going cell phone caroling and having a chili supper at church.  This is an sweet tradition my husband started, I love it!  We don’t have to be cold!  We gather together to have chili then everyone who has a cell phone pulls it out and we call them all at once and carol them over the phone.  We can do this with family, shut ins at church, neighbors too!
