In the air there’s a feeling of Christmas

“City sidewalks, busy sidewalks, dressed in holiday style. In the air there’s a feeling of Christmas……”
Indeed, the shopping malls and streets of Toronto are dressed in the “holiday” style. Christmas trees, wreaths, candles, etc..
And yes! It is not easy to take a photo with Santa Claus because of the lineup. Yet it is even harder to find baby Jesus or the Nativity. However, will we realize the true meaning behind these decorations is actually Christ Himself?
Christmas – Christ’s Mass.
Christmas Tree – Evergreen, ever alive, reminds us of the eternal life.
Christmas Star – The Star of David, the Star of Bethlehem.
Wreath – Evergreen, a ring with no beginning and no end.
Advent Candle – The light breaking through darkness, the Light of Christ.
Candy Cane – The shape of a shepherd's crook, reminding us that Jesus is our Shepherd.
Santa Claus – Originated from Saint Nicholas, Bishop of Myra, who taught us the meaning of giving.
In the air there’s truly a feeling of Christmas, of the Baby of Bethlehem, Jesus Christ.
Merry Christmas to all of you!
