It’s four weeks till Christmas! I love putting up our Christmas tree. Every year when I hang the ornaments on the tree, it reminds me of God’s goodness and faithfulness to me through the ages.
Growing up, my mom would say that the Christmas tree represents Christ in all its glory. The colours of the trimmings and the lights on the tree demonstrate the riches and glory of God. Some ornaments are passed down through generations, and every year some new ones are added. Today, some of the decorations on my tree were the same ornaments I had growing up. These bring me so much joy.
There are different styles and themes to decorate a Christmas tree. Common styles are the Classic Tree using red, gold and green ornaments, the Rustic and Woodland style using neutral and natural materials, the Glam style and many others. The Christmas tree styles usually blend with the aesthetic of the home. But, to me, the best part of the Christmas tree is the lights. How they twinkle and how they glow. The lights bring a sense of peace and create a nostalgic ambience in the home.
So, what does the Christmas Tree mean to you?
