Excerpt from The Real Black Santa
“Teach the children! Teach them the old meaning of Christmas. The meaning that now-a-days Christmas has forgotten.”
Did you know the pure green color of the Fir Tree remains all year round? The tree demonstrates the everlasting hope of mankind with all the needles point heavenward. This makes it a symbol of man’s thoughts turning toward heaven.
The magical star was the heavenly sign of promises long ago. God promised a Savior for the world, and the star was the sign of fulfillment of God’s promise.
The candle symbolizes that Christ is the light of the world, and when we see this great light we are reminded of He who displaces the darkness.
The wreath embodies the real nature of love. Real love never ceases. Love is one continuous round of affection.”
The Holly Plant means immortality. It personifies the crown of thorns worn by Jesus, and the Red Holly represents the blood shed by Him.
“God so loved the world that HE gave HIS only begotten SON…”
The angels heralded in the glorious news of the Savior’s birth. The angels sang “Glory to God in the highest, on earth peace and good will toward men.”
The candy cane is the shepherds’ crook. The crook on the staff helps to bring back strayed sheep to the flock.
As the lost sheep are found by the sound of the bell, it should ring mankind to the fold. The bell represents guidance and return.
The Real Black Santa encourages us to teach children that St. Nick (Santa Claus) is the generosity and good will we feel during the month of December. Merry Christmas to you and yours. May you enjoy an awesome holiday season 2021 with your family, friends and children of all ages!
