    Most of you know this fact..

    So, forgive the redundancy.

    But, i love this so much, and as its getting closer to that special day....


    ---------------------------

    Do you celebrate Christmas?
    Do you bake a cake, and sing "Happy Birthday, Jesus"?
    If you've never done this, then do it and be blessed.


    And about that Christmas Tree....
    Why is there a Christmas Tree, with Lights on it?

    Well...

    IN the Time of Jesus, ...lumber, = was a tree that was cut down.
    There was no electricity , or power tools.....so, when we read that Jesus hung on the Cross....The reality is, He hung on 2 Small TREES, nailed and roped together.

    So, Why is this significant regarding regarding "Christmas".

    Its because Jesus IS The Light of the WORLD< who Hung on a TREE.


    So, when you put lights on a tree, a CHRISTmas Tree, you are signifying and glorifying Jesus who is the LIGHT, who HUNG on a Tree.

    Your "lighted" Christmas Tree represents Jesus's Sacrifice for All your sin.

    Hannakah Celebration is one where Judas' Maccabees was holed up in the Temple Mount in Jerusalem during a seige. The Temple Candle didn't have enough holy oil to continue to burn for the seven days it did.
    So the seige lifted and Judas had a celebration for a week celebrating the miracle with eating and drinking (and refilling the lamp)

    Later during the annual festival of lights commemorating this event Jesus said to the priests setting up for it "I am the light of the world" meaning that His light will never be extinguished in this dark world.

    And I can really get behind that celebration.
