Every Christmas my husband and I carry on a tradition that started long ago: we tell the story of the first Christmas and all of those thereafter.
We celebrate Christmas because it is the day that symbolizes Christ’s birth. It isn’t about decorations, food, presents, or great deals on stuff we’ve wanted all year long. While those things aren’t necessarily bad they can cause us to take our eyes off of Him. That is why everything we do to celebrate this holiday and others is done through the filter of the Holy Spirit so that we can glorify Jesus.
