Make each other laugh. Take turns trying to make each other laugh without touching one another. Everyone should do their best not to laugh. What is the difference between laughing and real joy?

Read: But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. Luke 2:10

Ask: What has caused you great joy? What is the good news that the angel is talking about? Why would this good news cause all people great joy?

Pray: God, thank you for the good news that you sent to earth. Thank you for Jesus and his coming to save people from their sins.

Others things to do:

*Surprise people with acts of kindness that will cause joy in their lives. Think of at least five people to surprise this week. Make a plan to make it happen.

*Keep a journal of things you are grateful for. This will help you be more joyful.

*Make an ornament for the tree with the words, “JOY.” Use scrabble tiles glued together or form the letters out of pipe cleaners or dried pastas.
