This book is AMAZING and would make a PERFECT family read for the holidays!

"Discover the meaning of Christmas symbols"

Remembering that "Jesus is the reason" helps us to see the symbolism in the things we decorate the holidays with.

Look at some of the things you will learn in this book:

Did you know that the evergreen green tree which stands tall and remains green all year long shows us to be strong and firm in our beliefs and to look to Heaven in all things?

We decorate with lights because "Christ is the light of the world." Christmas lights remind us of this and of His spirit in each of us.

We wrap presents with bows to symbolizes the ties between families and friends and our Father in Heaven.

We give gifts just like the Wise Men did and to remember that Christ gave us the greatest give of all.

Why do we sing carols?

Hang wreaths of holly?

Sing of Santa and reindeer?

All of these things and more are explained in the wonderful, colorful book!

And most important of all you will see the symbolism as we decorate and celebrate with Joseph, Mary, Angels, and the Baby Jesus.

Let this season be more than a mere hustle and bustle.

Learn and then look at all the things that reminds us that this season is truly filled with our Saviors love.
