Good Morning boys and girls,
Happy Christmas. Are you excited like I am today? What makes you and me so deleriously excited and happy on Christmas day?
Of course -- today is Jesus' birthday! He was born, of all places, in this manger. (point to the manger in the Nativity scene -- talk about why Jesus was born in a manger)
Since Christmas is Jesus' birthday what about your birthday? What did you get?
