Christmas means so many things to me, it represents the birth of Jesus Christ my saviour. A very precious gift from God! Through Jesus, I have forgiveness of my sins and eternal life in heaven! Christmastime is also a time when we spend time with our family and friends and celebrate. I just love Christmas! Christmas also means tradition! We have many traditions and I have shared many with you already such as decorating and baking, but here are just a few more traditional things that happen here at Rose of Sharon Garden.
One tradition that I look so forward to is receiving a beautiful poinsettia (pictured above) from the company that my husband contracts for. It is always a very large and very beautiful poinsettia and it is delivered the Monday after Thanksgiving. We get to enjoy it all season long. I am sorry that I don't have a better picture of this year's flower.
Hayden surprised me and pleased me so much when he said, "Hey Mom, do you want to drive around and look at lights?"Needless to say, I had my boots and coat on in a flash and was in his truck in no time!
I think this one is my favorite! First of all the house is so adorable, it's an old farm house with a big huge front porch, but with all the Christmas lights on it, it's just so picturesque and fantastic! I love the Santa and reindeer on the rooftop!
I hope that you get to do all of you favorite traditional christmas things! The main thing of course is that we stop and remember the beautiful gift of all, Jesus Christ our savior!
Merry Christmas to all of you!
"And you will have joy and gladness, and many will rejoice at His birth!" Luke 1:14
