DID YOU KNOW???

Did you know tht the chopping down of the Christmas Tree represents the death of Christ and putting it back up again represents the resurrection of Christ?
Did you know tht the wreaths we hang are never ending circles, that represents eternity?
Candy canes were made to look like sheperd hooks and the colors red, Jesus's blood, white, purity?
The gifts represents the gifts the wise men brought for Jesus?
Sooooo....when you are running around trying to get the "perfect gift", stop yourself, take a deep breath and remember we have been given the perfect gift. Jesus Christ was given to us to remove all of our sins.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU JESUS!!!!
Until Next Time......MERRY CHRISTMAS TO YOU ALL!!!
*)*)*) to my special three...I know you are loving my posts...and Itruely so pray that this Christmas will bring to your heart a softness that has been missing. Letting go of all the self loathing that causes you to abuse those who you should admire, love and appreciate. And to ONE of you in particular....if your nasty comments continue...your Christmas gift from me will in fact be a restraining order wrapped up in police charges!! HUGS!

Glenda, Merry Christmas, dear Lady! I did not know these very interesting facts about Christmas traditions, and now that I do, they mean so much more.

I'm so sore at the moment from my bouncing down a flight of stairs (that was the fastest I ever descended a staircase, but I do NOT recommend my method, lol) so even if we did live closer the most I could do to help you would be to moan and groan. But look at you, oh WOW you have gotten so much done already! It boggles the mind what the wall coverings were like, oh, my, and to think they 'liked' that look? I never thought about using Contac paper as wall paper, very innovative, but wow, ugly.

I keep you and the children and your parents in my prayers, and hope you are safe from any who would wish you harm. Bless you, Tootsie, and here's to a Happy New Year!

Lovely thoughts for Christmas, and every day! I'd never heard of the Christmas tree meaning but I will cherish it now. Thank you! Happy New Year!

Very good post. I didn't know that about the Christmas trees. I knew they meant everlasting life because they were everlasting trees but the info you shared is great to know too. It makes it even more special for me. Thanks.
