Christmas Baking

Listen to our daily Advent story beginning December 1.

Christmas and baking definitely go hand in hand. No one can resist the smell of a pie in the oven. As a way of preparing for Christmas people used to fast on Christmas Eve, so when Christmas morning arrived, they were very hungry. A typical breakfast used to be porridge. However, over time things like dried fruit or honey were added. Then, flour and eggs were added and it became more like a sweet loaf of bread, or a fruitcake.

Ephesians 5:2 says, “Christ also loved you and gave Himself up for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God as a sweet-smelling aroma.”

Jesus was born in the town of Bethlehem which literally means, “house of bread”, and He would later be referred to as the Bread of Life. Like bread, Jesus nourishes our heart with hope, forgiveness, and love.

Take Away:

Think about what your favorite holiday treat is and why you think we bake more around Christmastime.
