    First time listener and your story about the bags of blessed straw reminded me of a practice my family has done each Advent since about 1973. Oh my! an almost 40yr. tradition. We keep a jar with a slot in the top in the area our manger is going to be. We had cut small strips of colorful construction paper and set them in a box or bowl near the jar. All during Advent as we did a good deed at home or anywhere we put a slip in the jar. On Christmas Eve we open our jar and sprinkle our ‘good deeds’,so colorful, on our straw in the manger in anticipation of Jesus’ birth. They were a constant reminder of our preparation and they became our offering to him on Christmas. But, as I have come to learn over the years, some of my six children say they are reminded of doing good when they see construction paper. Christ just keeps on giving and we can be Christ to all at any time.
