If you are looking for a new tradition to do with your family at Christmas time then you might want to consider adding a Jesse Tree to your list of traditions.
What is a Jesse Tree and why do we use the name Jesse?
It all started in the Medieval times and told the story from Creation to the Birth of Christ.
Jesse comes from the father of King David. and coincides with the Bible verse Isaiah 11:1-4:
The branch signifies new life (that we have in Christ).

1. Another way to focus on Christ at Christmas
2. Make special memories
