Favorite Sabbath Activities?

Walking in the woods was always a great way to spend Sabbath afternoons.When I was a kid, some of my favorite Sabbath activities revolved around nature. We used to go walking in near-by parks on Sabbath afternoon. Or we might walk down to the river.

My parents made Sabbath special by starting on Friday night with a special meal, a candle-lit family worship, and sending us to bed in our “Sabbath pajamas.” We weren’t allowed to swim, ride bikes, or watch anything on TV (there were no VCRs back then anyway), but we didn’t feel like we missed out on anything because we did other things to make Sabbath special.

What are some of your favorite ways of making Sabbath special? Let us know in the comments below.
