Here’s a word search that will introduce you to most of the major participants in the Christmas Story. It was originally written with younger students in mind (hence the word Primary in the title) but can be enjoyed by all. Once you’ve crossed out, or circled, the participants in the list below the puzzle, arrange your un-crossed out letters in order to find an appropriate message for all Christians about what Christmas is as well as its author.
In a public school with a history of religions course, it will afford a nice starting point for a study of the Christmas Story. In Christian schools, it will provide a review of the Christmas Story, or sharpening up tool. It would make a nice New Testament Bible study activity for ANY Sunday School class for second grade and beyond . . . INCLUDING adult classes. The hidden message is worth the effort for all. The object is for all of us to understand what Christ wants of us.
