I think a key requirement of believing in the non-biblical aspects of Christmas such as Elves, Talking Snowmen and even Santa Clause is having a good Imagination.
Who was it that ruined or tried to ruin your belief in Santa Clause by telling you he isn’t real?…. Before you go blaming me, I am confirming or denying nothing! I refuse to ruin anyone’s beliefs…. Truthfully, I don’t remember when or how I was told or gained knowledge. I know at some point Santa’s presents stopped coming. But, that doesn’t necessarily mean he isn’t real.
Maybe he focuses more on the younger set because they hang onto their Imaginations a little bit longer.
I was going to add the word, Holiday, but we all know it’s my favorite Holiday which is why I am covering it for this challenge.
So, let’s learn a bit about Holly:
While Holly is a very, pretty plant and nice to decorate with, it also has a history of religious meaning.
In Scandinavia, Holly is known as Christ’s Thorn and some Christians believe the prickly leaves of Holly represent the Crown Of Thorns placed on the head of Jesus during the crucifixion and the berries represent the drops of blood caused by those thorns. An interesting way to think about Holly, next time you decorate.
And tomorrow is I. Not quite sure just where that will take me. Could be personal or might just be an cold subject.
