But we might overlook the idea of a census. These Christmas Census Questions help your family better understand the census Mary and Joseph participated in that led them to the town of Bethlehem. Family Activity: Christmas Census Questions First, read aloud Luke 2:1-5 to see how Mary and Joseph had to travel for the census. Then answer the following questions as a family: How many people live in our house? What is the age of the youngest person in our house? What is the age of the oldest child in our house? Why do we have Bibles in our house? What do you love the best about our family? What do we like about our family praying together? What’s each person’s favorite Christmas decoration? What do you love most about Christmas? When are the best times for our family to talk about God? How does our family’s faith help us at school or work? What’s something you’re thankful to God for today? Check out all these Christmas ideas!
