A Christmas Promise
By Tamera Lynn Kraft
A Moravian Holiday Story, Circa 1773
During colonial times, John and Anna settle in an Ohio village to become Moravian missionaries to the Lenape. When John is called away to help at another settlement two days before Christmas, he promises he’ll be back by Christmas Day.
When he doesn’t show up, Anna works hard to not fear the worst while she provides her children with a traditional Moravian Christmas.
Through it all, she discovers a Christmas promise that will give her the peace she craves.

How I Celebrate Christmas
In my novella, A Christmas Promise, the Moravians were some of the first people who went all out for Christmas. I can relate to that. I love the music, the decorations, the movies, and just about everything else that goes along with Christmas. On Christmas day, we normally have everyone come to our house. First we open Christmas presents by the tree while Christmas carols play in the background. Then we’ll have donuts and hot chocolate to tide us over for our big Christmas feast. No paper plates and processed food for us. I decorate the table with my best linens and china. My husband makes the beef roast which we call our roast beast (we got that from the Grinch Who Stole Christmas) and the desserts. He’s a good cook. I make all the fixings. After dinner, the family has dessert and plays games or watches a Christmas movie together. I love Christmas.
