"Teach the Children the True Meaning of Christmas.

The Star: A heavenly sign of prophecy fulfilled long, long ages ago. The shining hope of mankind.

The Color Red: The first color of Christmas symbolizing the Savior's sacrifice for all.

The Fir Tree: Evergreen--The second color of Christmas represents everlasting life. The needles point heavenward.

The Bell: Rings out to guide lost sheep back to the fold--signifying that all are precious in the eyes of the Lord.

The Candle: A mirror of starlight reflecting our thanks for the Star of Bethlehem. A reminder that Christ is the Light of the World.

The Gift Bow: Tied as should be all tied together in bonds of goodwill forever.

Candy Cane: The shepherd's crook used to bring lambs back into the fold. A reminder that we are all our brother's keeper.

The Wreath: A symbol of the never ending, eternal nature of love-- having no beginning and no end.

Just thought this was an interesting take on the true meaning behind Christmas. Hope everyone has a Very Merry Christmas.

but for those of us who do not follow the christian faith, this is a wonderful time of year to be thankful for your family and spend much needed time together before another year is upon us.
