Christmas Tree Milestone Moment
The season of Advent signals the beginning of the church year and gives a wonderful opportunity to establish rituals and traditions to be handed from one generation to the next. An Advent wreath provides a visual reminder in the home of Jesus birth and His coming again. The Christmas tree is another visual reminder. Legend tells that the evergreen was chosen and decorated with candles to represent God’s creation and the gift of God’s Son as the Light of the World. Taking time to put up the Christmas tree and decorate it together with family is important. This Milestone Moment encourages caring conversations and provides prayers that point to Jesus as the Light of the World while we prepare for Christmas.
