The christmas tree is a symbol that God is the one true God. Back in Germany a long time ago men were praying to a sacred tree that they believed their “god” dwelled on. And if anyone should ever cut it down they would be punished from their “god”. Well a christian came along and chopped down the tree, and nothing happened. So all the people turned and followed the one true God after that. .

Even the stars remind us about how God made all the stars so beautiful. And how on that one Christmas night he made a very special star stay over the place where Jesus lay. The beautiful star of Bethlehem. (there is a really interesting video about the star. It’s a christian astronomer explaining how, why, where and the importance of the star! Just look up the name on google and it will pop up)

The word Christmas itself refers back to Christ! Its derived from the word Christ’s mass. When people would gather together to celebrate the child’s birth. Then it was shortened to Christmas!

Merry Christmas! And remember Jesus is the reason for the season!
