And on Earth

Christmas is about Jesus.

When our oldest two sons were small, we would talk to them about the real meaning of Christmas.

Once, while waiting in line at a store, our second son told another customer something like this:

“Santa Claus is pretend Christmas. Jesus is real Christmas.”

Yes.

Real Christmas is about Jesus.

Now there were in the same country shepherds living out in the fields, keeping watch over their flock by night.  And behold, an angel of the Lord stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were greatly afraid. Then the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people.  For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.  And this will be the sign to you: You will find a Babe wrapped in swaddling cloths, lying in a manger.”

 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying:

“Glory to God in the highest,
And on earth peace, goodwill toward men!”

–Luke 2:8-14
