Day 6: The Birth in a Manger

Start using your Christmas Countdown Book on December 1st. Today would be presented on December 6th. There will be a different subject for each day until Christmas Day, December 25th. The purpose of this Christmas Countdown Book is to help you remember and focus on Jesus Christ during the Christmas season!

Scripture

Luke 2: 6-7

And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered.

And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.

In our Christmas Countdown Book, Day 1 focuses on Jesus Christ. See what art, scripture, song, video, and ornament we used to help us remember Christ.

Song

Away in a Manger, Hymn 206

1. Away in a manger, no crib for his bed,
The little Lord Jesus laid down his sweet head;
The stars in the heavens looked down where he lay,
The little Lord Jesus, asleep on the hay.
2. The cattle are lowing; the poor baby wakes,
But little Lord Jesus, no crying he makes.
I love thee, Lord Jesus; look down from the sky
And stay by my cradle till morning is nigh.
3. Be near me, Lord Jesus; I ask thee to stay
Close by me forever, and love me, I pray.
Bless all the dear children in thy tender care,
And fit us for heaven to live with thee there.

Video

The Nativity

Ornament

The inspiration for this baby Jesus ornament came from littlebitfunky. The supplies you need: old fashioned clothespins, small scrap of fabric (I used a washcloth), hot glue, thin craft wire, and a metallic star sticker and some craft straw/hay.
