First and foremost, a child's Christmas should be a religious Christmas. And I don't use the term "religious" in a negative, legalistic, shallow way. I simply mean that Christmas should be true to its namesake, Jesus Christ.
Thus, our Jesse Tree:
The ornaments, which are placed on the tree each day through advent, tell the story of Jesus through the Scriptures. I love how this beautiful daily decoration, used year after year, teaches our children that Jesus is the theme of the Bible, that He was the point from the very beginning.
They also gave us a simple booklet that reminds us which ornament goes on which day, and gives a Bible reading.
