The Nativity Scenes were arranged. Jesus comes in glass, plastic and ceramic. HE shines always.
The tree stood proud and tall, all adorned with memories. One by one each memory is categorized, oohhed and ahhed over and hung on a sturdy bough.
The Snow people and Santas took their place here and there.
Fake fluffy snow fell right into place.
A quaint little Christmas village lined up by the fire.
The fire glowed, danced and even cheered as the elves helped unwrap the fun festive items from tubs which had survived another year in the attic.
Christmas carols softly played their tune and sung their lyrics.
Once the boxes were hidden and the elves were exhausted, the ELF movie took it’s place on the television right after Charlie Brown’s Christmas.
Yes, the traditions of Christmas arrived today…
But in our home, CHRISTMAS is every day. Christmas is not just a holiday. It’s not a tree, Santa or snow. Christmas is celebrated here not just for tradition… it is celebrated, because Jesus was born! Jesus was born so we could all live. I know Thanksgiving Day has not yet come and gone, but in our house, Thanksgiving is EVERYDAY! We are constantly thankful for the birth of our Lord and Savior.
