Baby Jesus received some beautiful gifts when he was born.
What are the reasons for observing some Christmas traditions?
In the sky at the time of Jesus' birth, a bright star shone. Because of following this star, three kings traveled a long distance to the birthplace of Jesus. They brought gold, frankincense (an aromatic resin used in incense and perfume), and oils.
The Christmas wreath symbolizes Christ’s crown of thorns. Red, green, and gold eventually became the Christmas colors. We often associate red with Jesus' blood, green with life, and gold with royalty and light. And the evergreen foliage used to make Christmas wreaths symbolizes the continuity of life and nature even in the darkest days of winter.
Have you ever wondered why people go door-to-door singing carols? It based the tradition on the English custom of wassailing, a ceremony to toast to someone’s good health and fortune. St. Francis of Assisi took this tradition and converted it to the modern form of caroling.
The mistletoe symbolizes love, joy, and compassion, according to tradition. Through the mistletoe, mistletoe kisses are a way of asking for blessings from the spirits of Christmas.
