The Meaning that now-a-days Christmas has Forgotten

These are the the traditional symbols of Christmas and their meanings.

FIR TREE. The pure green color of the stately fir tree remains green all year round, depicting the everlasting hope of mankind, all the needles point heavenward, making it a symbol of man's thoughts turning toward heaven."

STAR. The star was the heavenly sign of promises long ago. God promised a Savior for the world, and the star was the sign of fulfillment of His promise."

CANDLE. The candle symbolizes that Christ is the light of the world, and when we see this great light, we are reminded of He who displaces the darkness."

WREATH. The wreath symbolizes the real nature of love. Real love never ceases. Love is one continuous round of affection."

Santa Claus. Santa Clause symbolize the generosity and good will we feel during the month of December."

HOLLY LEAF. It represents the crown of thorns worn by our Savior. The red holly represents the blood shed by Him."

GIFT. God so loved the world that HE gave HIS begotten SON... Thanks be to God for his unspeakable gift. The wise men bowed before the Holy BABE and presented HIM with gold, frankincense and myrrh. We should always give gifts in the same spirit of the wise men."

CANDY CANE. The candy cane represents the shepherds' crook. The crook on the staff helps to bring back strayed sheep to the flock. The candy cane is the symbol that we are our brother's keeper."

ANGEL. The angels that heralded in the glorious news of the Savior's birth. The angels sang 'Glory to God in the highest, on earth peace and good will toward men."

BELL. The lost sheep are found by the sound of the bell, it should ring mankind to the fold. The bell symbolizes guidance and return."

"Remember, the true meaning of Christmas is to worship HIM, our LORD, our GOD."
