Teach the children | December 11, 2008

“Teach the children,Teach them the old meaning of christmas-the meaning that christmas nowadays has forgotten”

Teach the children that the shiny star on the tree,was the heavenly sign of promise long ages ago.God promised a saviour for the world and the star was a sign of fullfillment of that promise.the countless shining stars at night-one for each man-now show the burning hope of all mankind.

teach the children red is the first colour of christmas.It was first used by faithful people to remind them of the blood which was shed for all people by the savior.Christ gave his life and shed his blood that every man may have gods gift of eternal life.Red is deep ,intense vivid-it is the greatest colour of all.it is the symbol of the gift of god.

the second colour of christmas,Green. “the pure green colour of the statley fir tree remains green all year round this depicts the everlasting hope of mankind.green is youthful,hopeful abundant of colour of nature.All needles point heavenward-symbols of mans returning thoughts towards heaven.the great green tree has been mans best friend.It has sheltered him,warmed him and made beauty for him.

Teach the children Candles show mans thanks for the star of long ago.Its small light is the mirror of starlight at first candles were placed on the trees-they were like glowing stars shining against the dark green.The coloured lights have now taken over in rememberance.

Teach the children “a bow is placed on a present to remind us of the spirit of brotherhood of man.we should remember that the bow is tied as men should be tied,all of us together,with the bonds of good will towards each other.Good will forever is the message of the bow.

Teach the children that the candy cane placed high on the tree,represents the crook of the shepard,the crook on the staff bring back the strayed sheep to the flock.the candy cane represents the helping hand we should show at christmas time,The candy cane is the symbol that we are our brothers keepers.

Please teach the children that a holly wreathe placed on the door symbolises the eternal nature love;it never ceases stops or ends.It is one continuous round of affection.The wreathe does double duty It is made of many things and colours.It should remind us of all things of christmas.

please teach the children.

  5. What a lovely entry. It’s sad that for many Christmas is only about food, drink and presents with no thought beyond that as to why we celebrate it.
    Have a good weekend! xx
