FHE Lesson {C-H-R-I-S-T-M-A-S Means}

 These two lessons have a similar idea, so I've combined the two here.
Opening Prayer: Child
What does Christmas mean to you?
We can use the letters of Christmas to remind us of what it stands for.
 Play the Song C-H-R-I-S-T-M-A-S (C is for the Christchild) Sing it or play a version via Youtube
When I was but a youngster, Christmas meant one thing
That I'd be getting lots of toys that day
I learned a whole lot different when mother sat me down
And taught me to spell Christmas this way
C is for the Christ child born upon this day
H for herald angels in the night
R means our redeemer
I means Israel
S is for the star that shone so bright
T is for three wise men, they who traveled far
M is for the manger where He lay
A is for all He stands for
S means Shepard's came

And that's why there's a Christmas day!

Second time around show pictures to match each letter/word of the song. 
Print out or write large each letter of 'Christmas 'and lay out letters and pictures as you sing/talk about the song.
You can make it into a Banner and Leave up all week to remind you of what Christmas stands for.
