Symbols of Christmas
by Lynne in Newark, CA)
THE STAR: A heavenly sign of prophecy fulfilled
long, long ages ago, -- The shining hope of mankind.
RED: The first color of Christmas, symbolizing
the Savior's sacrifice for all.
FIR TREE: Evergreen -- The second color of
Christmas shows 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.
GIFT BOW: Tied as we should all be 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.
