Christmas: Symbol of Hope, Joy

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.
