Reason for the Season

Tonight at the in-laws, Grandpa asked Piper (4) why we have Christmas... "Because if we don't have Christmas Santa won't bring presents and that's why we have Christmas." We had been talking about the true meaning of Christmas just hours earlier during our last-minute-shopping spree. We even re-discussed that Santa brings the kids 3 gifts each (two plus the stocking) to remind them of the 3 gifts the wisemen brought Jesus when he was born. So Grandpa asked Jack (7) the same question... "It's to remember Jesus' birth in a stable." Phew... I'm not that bad of a mother! Merry Christmas everyone! May your season be filled with the peace and comfort of our Savior, Jesus Christ.
