Jesse Tree? Advent Wreath? Three Wisemen?

While we are a small family for now, I want to start some family traditions this upcoming Advent/Christmas season..what have y’all done? What do you think of the Jesse Tree? Advent Wreaths? Three Wisemen?

I don’t want to do the secular stuff with our kids like Elf on the Shelf, because 1) He looks creepy as all get out and 2) There are way more important and meaningful traditions we could partake in..

Look at those creepy eyes..

Look at those creepy eyes..

For the Jesse Tree tradition, there are 28 ornaments that correlate with 28 Bible stories in Salvation History..this is one of Andrew’s favorite subjects, so I think we could really go crazy with it and influence all who enter our home..and look how pretty these ornaments are!
