    MARKED Church Christmas Traditions

    We talk about Christmas traditions we practice in our churches—everything from hair catching on fire to Christmas carols to Advent candles. We hear from some of our listeners on their favorite church Christmas traditions, too! More than anything, we love how these traditions, even when they fail, point us to Jesus, the Light of the World.
