The Meaning of Christmas

 Opal: Is it time, Mr. Gus?  Uncle Clyde?  Is it time for Santa to come?  I'm looking extra cute!

Gus:  Opal, Christmas is more than about Santa.  Santa is great and all but it is about celebrating the birth of Jesus.

Uncle Clyde:  Opal, let me tell you a story.  

"And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.  And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.  And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.  For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord.  And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.  And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men."  Luke 2:8-14 KJV

  Is that what they are talking about when we watched Christmas Eve Services with Mama?

Yes!  Exactly!  It is ok to be excited about Santa but let's never forget the reason we celebrate.

Merry Christmas to all of our internet family!  We hope you are all healthy and that we can bring you some Christmas smiles!
