The best thing about the Christmas season is pulling out the Christmas tree and decorating it! We would all gather around as a family and listen to Christmas music (One of two days this was allowed ;)) as we set up the tree :) The Christmas tree is beautiful! Many spend hours wondering around large cities to view giant trees! This is a great reminder of the true reason for the season. The evergreen tree symbolizes our Saviors never failing love for us. Just as the evergreen does not die with the changing of the season Our Savior does not leave us in times of trial! It reminds us that He never truly died but overcame death so that none of us ever have to remain in a state of death!
This year as you gather around the tree with your family and loved ones think of Christ. Think of how He has gathered us together to remind us that He will never leave us and death has been over come :)
