CHRISTMAS EVE

This Christmas Eve, millions of American children will leave out cookies and milk for Santa Claus to enjoy after his trip down their chimney with his bag of gifts. Some will add a few carrots for his trusty reindeer, as Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner, Blitzen and Rudolph need sustenance as well.

But it hasn’t always been that way.

According to one theory, the cookies-and-milk custom is derived from an older tradition, when families would stuff stockings with goodies for Santa and hang them by the chimney, his preferred mode of entrance, as a welcoming gift. Now, however, those stockings are usually chock-full of treats and smaller gifts for the family members themselves.

SANTA AND HIS “COMPANY” WATER SKY

Santa water skies on the Potomac River in Alexandra, Virginia

The show, including a water-skying Santa, reindeers, elves, the Grinch and Frosty, the Snowman, has been performing for more than thirty years.

The tradition, celebrating its 30th year, will not just see the# Jolly Old Elf on the water, but a whole cast of characters including knee boarding reindeer, flying elves, a jet-skiing Grinch and the only snowman you’ll see this Christmas — Frosty, in a dinghy.

It could also be that, after a long day’s work, Santa gets on his jet ski and takes a break.

Something to think about …. “What Really Matters”!!


XmasTree

~~December 19, 2015~~ 

THE TRUE MEANING OF CHRISTMAS

In today’s’ day and time,
It’s easy to lose sight,
Of the true meaning of Christmas
And one special night.

When we go shopping,
We say ‘How much will it cost? ‘
Then the true meaning of Christmas,
Somehow becomes lost.

Amidst the tinsel, glitter
And ribbons of gold,
We forget about the child,
Born on a night so cold.

The children look for Santa
In his big, red sleigh
Never thinking of the child
Whose bed was made of hay?

In reality,
When we look into the night sky,
We don’t see a sleigh
But a star, burning bright and high.

A faithful reminder,
Of that night so long ago,
And of the child we call Jesus,
Whose love, the world would know.
