Dinner Topics for Thursday
I don’t know about you, but these days when I go shopping, it’s getting harder and harder to find true Christmas items, even wrapping paper, that shows anything remotely connected with the real Reason for the Season. As time goes by, the only way our families are going to know the real meaning of Christmas, and preserve our cherished Judeo-Christian traditions, is for us to teach them ourselves. Here is a short list of Christmas symbols you can share at dinner time.
The Color Red:
The first color of Christmas, symbolizing the Savior’s sacrifice for all
The Fir Tree:
Evergreen- the second color of Christmas shows everlasting light and life. The needles point up to heaven.
The Bell: Rings out to guide lost sheep back to the fold, signifying that all are precious in His eyes.
The Candle: A mirror of starlight, reflecting our thanks for the star of Bethlehem.
The Gift Bow: Tied as we should all be tied together in bonds of goodwill forever.
The Candy Cane: Represents the shape of the shepherd’s crook, used to bring lost lambs back to the fold.
The Wreath: A symbol of the never ending eternal value of love…having no end.
Keep our precious Judeo-Christian traditions alive!
