Here is a fun way to throw a simple lesson in using the Christmas Tree as the analogy. You can add these one or two a week for the month of December, use them as your mid-week lessons for the month, or make a special Sunday out of them all on their own. Adding something unique for the holiday season is a great way to keep their attention fresh. They get diverted with holiday parties, special events, choir practices, school is almost out .... etc. Give them something different to think about during service -- you'll thank yourself later!
