Star ornaments symbolize the Star of Bethlehem.
Angels announced Jesus' birth to Joseph, Mary, and the shepherds.
(Matthew 1, Luke 1 and 2)
Christmas lights remind us of Jesus, the Light of the World.
Red reminds us of God's love in sending His Son to die for us on the cross.
Gold reminds us that Jesus is King of Kings.
Gifts under the tree remind us of the Wise Men and their gifts to the Christ Child. They remind us of the greatest gift of all ~ Jesus.
