It’s a treat to drive through certain neighborhoods in this Christmas season to see the special decorations of all sorts. Some are minimal to be seen primarily in the daytime and others are brilliant with lights, scenes, and inflatables galore. I imagine some utility bills are increasing through the month.
I enjoy the different manger scenes, some complete with the cast of characters, angels and animals. Often these are highlighted with spot lights or internal lighting systems. All give a good witness of the celebration of the birth of our Savior and are welcomed.
Then we have the elaborate Santa Claus set ups with reindeer, sleighs and all. Some like the Frosty the Snowman displays with candy canes and lights around the trees and bushes. Houses too are adorned with special lighting effects, wreathes, and candles in the windows. It all looks good.
Let’s celebrate Christmas as best we can. It’s a great reminder of the provision of God and the love we share with each other.
Merry Christmas to you!
