Last Sunday our kids club had a Christmas Party. The lesson was that Jesus in the reason we celebrate Christmas. As you can see from the slideshow below, we expressed our love for many of the Christmas traditions and stories that have grown up surrounding the mythology of Christmas, but that Christmas is a holy day (holiday) because we remember and celebrate the First Advent--the birth of the Son of God 2000 years ago when Jesus was born in Bethlehem. Just like we look forward to the celebration of Christmas each year, Christians should look forward to the day when Jesus will return--his Second Advent--on the last day. So have a very Merry Christmas!
