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.
Candy Cane: The shepherd's crook used to bring lambs back into the fold. A reminder that we are all our brother's keeper.
Just thought this was an interesting take on the true meaning behind Christmas. Hope everyone has a Very Merry Christmas.
