Le'ts ALL Say It Together....

CHRISTMAS Some 2000 years ago a baby was born, just not any baby...
But the SON OF GOD, and he was named Jesus because that is the name the angel told his young mother to use. (St. Luke 1:31)

was he born on December 25th....most likely not...because we know that the Shepard's were in their fields with their flocks of lambs (Spring time)the date doesn't matter, but somewhere in the 1800's the United States started to celebrate Christmas....with the Christ Child, Nativity sets, Family and Food.
and for is a special time to remember a different time in our Saviors life...not just the 2 years that he went about doing "His Father's work", but as a little boy, who loved his mother and father, and was a beautiful baby.
Now, don't get me wrong...I LOVE SANTA!!! I believe in Santa...I enjoy all the fun that comes to little children because of Santa.
Are you kidding...I wave at every Santa in the stores..."You never know which one of them is the "REAL" one.
I love celebrating "the holiday of Lights"
Hanukkah and lighting my Menorah
(Dec. 11-19, 2009)
yes, I know a Mormon with a Menorah
Let the real meaning for the season ring in our hearts...
a Miracle...
the birth of a Child
and Magic!
Let is not forget to leave Christ in CHRISTmas...
