Teach True Meaning of Christmas
Long years ago I received a handout with the following information. I hope that you will find it helpful in remembering and teaching the true meaning of Christmas.
And Santa whispered, "Teach the children the true meaning of Christmas."
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.

Candy Cane: The shepherd's crook used to bring lambs back into the fold - a reminder that all of us are our brother's keeper.
The Wreath: A symbol of the never ending eternal nature of love - having no beginning and no end.
