My Reason For Christmas

Late on a sleepy, star-spangled night, those angels peeled back the sky just like you would tear open a sparkling Christmas present. Then, with light and joy pouring out of Heaven like water through a broken dam, they began to shout and sing the message that baby Jesus had been born. The world had a Savior! The angels called it "Good News," and it was.

I love that simple star ornament. It is so wonderful to celebrate the birth of Jesus with all these special things.

What a beautiful image those words conjure up. Oh to have been one of the shepherds!

Hello Diane, I agree with you. I'm a Quaker but am going to Choral evensong on Christmas Eve at Salisbury Cathedral- that is the true meaning of Christmas for me. Jane x
