Texas Matters: Stories Of Christmas


Christmas is a time of stories and nothing is more powerful and meaningful than your own family stories. Christmas wasn’t always like we experience it today. It wasn’t that long ago that the Holiday Season was a momentary respite from a time of hardship. The magic of the Christmas was supplied by the imagination of children and their dreams.

We encourage you to tell your Christmas stories to your children and make them part of your holiday tradition.
