The Symbols of Christmas
(collected by Lynne in Newark, CA)
  1. THE STAR: A heavenly sign of prophecy fulfilled long, long ages ago, -- The shining hope of mankind.
  2. RED: The first color of Christmas, symbolizing the Savior's sacrifice for all.
  3. FIR TREE: Evergreen -- The second color of Christmas shows everlasting life. The needles point heavenward.
  4. THE BELL: Rings out to guide lost sheep back to the fold -- signifying that all are precious in the eyes of the Lord.
  5. THE CANDLE: A mirror of starlight reflecting our thanks for the Star of Bethlehem.
  6. GIFT BOW: Tied as we should all be tied together in bonds of goodwill forever.
  7. CANDY CANE: The shepherd's crook used to bring lambs back into the fold. A reminder that we are all our brother's keeper.
  8. THE WREATH: A symbol of the never-ending eternal nature of love...having no beginning and no end.
