Thinking of Christmas, Christmas tree decorations instantly comes to my mind. "It's time to get the Christmas tree… !" It's not just a Christmas tree, it's a holiday tradition!
Christmas trees have been a part of Christmas for generations. Christmas brings our families together and unites us around the Christmas tree in celebration. No matter which method we used, the family activity of getting to build the Christmas tree was one of the high spots of the Christmas season...one I look back on with fondness and remember how close it seemed to bring the family. The Christmas tree tradition constitutes a special time for families, one which creates memories for years to come.
For every year the Christmas tree,
Brings to us all both joy and glee.
O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree,
Much pleasure doth thou bring me!
let your blessing come upon us as we illumine this tree. May the light and cheer it gives be a sign of the joy that fills our hearts. May all who delight in this tree come to the knowledge and joy of salvation.
