THE TRADITION OF GIFT GIVING AND OTHERS

This entry is part 2 of 6 in the series The Perfect Gift

MOST PEOPLE DON’T
REALIZE THAT
THE TRADITION OF GIFT
GIVING GOES BACK TO THE
WISE MEN WHO BROUGHT GIFTS
FROM AFAR TO THE NEWBORN
JESUS.

  THE CHRISTMAS TREE IS     
ALWAYS AN EVERGREEN THAT    
 SYMBOLIZES THE PROMISE     
    OF ETERNAL LIFE.        

THE PRACTICE OF CUTTING IT
DOWN AND PUTTING IT BACK
UP AGAIN EMULATES JESUS’
DEATH AND RESURRECTION.

         THE CANDY CANE IS       
    FASHIONED AFTER A       
    SHEPHERD'S STAFF,       
 SHEPHERDS WHO WITNESSED    
   THE BIRTH OF JESUS.      

THE WHITE AND RED COLORS
SYMBOLIZE BOTH THE PURITY
AND THE BLOOD OF
JESUS’ SACRIFICE.

A CHRISTMAS WREATH IS A RING
WITH NO BEGINNING OR END.
A SIGH THAT IT IS ETERNAL…
JUST LIKE GOD.
