“Creativity is the hallmark of Christmas. Think of the originality that went into the first Christmas. Every feature was a surprise, for nothing seemed to follow the natural scheme of things. The eternal God in a manger. No room in the inn. Visitors on camels. Shepherds in their fields. The star. No one but the Creator Himself would have scripted it that way. …

Truly creative people derive their creativity from the Creator, so it’s important to ask God how He’d have you celebrate Christmas. He alone can create out of nothing. We’re only creative in a secondary sense, taking what He has already made and “fiddling” with it. Ask Him to show you fresh and meaningful ways to celebrate Jesus in your heart, in your family, and in your church.” (David Jeremiah, The 12 Ways of Christmas)
