The Gift of Christmas
"It came without ribbons. It came without tags. It came without packages, boxes or bags.
And he puzzled and puzzled 'till his puzzler was sore. Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before.
'What if Christmas,' he thought, 'doesn't come from a store?
What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more?'"
Dr. Seuss said it well: Christmas is more than what we buy at a store. At this site, we celebrate that "more" by sharing the story of the first Christmas, along with some other holiday goodies:
- The First Christmas ~ as told in the Bible
- Why was Jesus born? ~ a brief explanation of *the* Gift of Christmas: Jesus
- Teach the Children ~ the meaning of some holiday symbols
- Christmas Quotes ~ observations about Christmas and the holiday season
- Carols/Lyrics ~ five classic hymns
- Gift Ideas ~ a few suggestions
- Christmas Traditions ~ new and old
- Around The World ~ how others say "Merry Christmas"
- Mary's First Moments ~ a poem about Jesus' mother
- Site Directory ~ the full list of our features includes seasonal humor and more
Additional Christmas items and articles can be found at our companion blog, RainShine.
Feedback about the site is much appreciated, as are submissions of your Christmas traditions, poems, etc. that I can post here.
Thank you for visiting: enjoy The Gift of Christmas!
