Tori's SkyMoms Tips....Teaching the Symbols of Christmas!

Every Christmas symbol ought to point to the Lord Jesus Christ. Our entire focus for this season is on Christ, His character, our service to Him, and our opportunity to spread His light to others.
THE STAR: a heavenly sign of prophecy fulfilled long ages ago. It's the shining hope of mankind and a reminder that wise men still seek Him.
RED: the first color of Christmas. It symbolizes God's greatest gift- 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 all are precious in the eyes of the Lord. It calls for all to follow the true Shepherd.
THE CANDLE: represents our gratitude for the gift of God's son. It symbolizes the light within all of us, shining for all to see.
GIFT BOW: tied as we should all be tied together in bonds of goodwill forever.
GIFTS: For many people, gifts define Christmas. They focus on the giving and receiving of gifts instead of on our greatest Gift Jesus Who gave Himself to us at Christmas. The wise men who brought their gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh to honor the infant King in Bethlehem's manger have inspired the concept of gift giving at Christmas. 

CANDY CANE: the shepherd's crook used to bring lambs back to the fold. It's a reminder that we are all our brother's keeper. It also forms a J, representing the precious name of Jesus who came to Earth.
THE WREATH: a symbol of the never ending eternal nature of love, having no beginning and no end.

Merry Christmas,
