Christmas Lights

Matthew 4:16

Have you ever wondered why we have Christmas lights? The tradition of lighting the tree with small candles dates to the 17th century and originated in Germany before spreading to Eastern Europe. We have come a long way since then and most of the reasoning for having them has passed away for most. Now it just makes things look festive, fun and pretty. The different colored candles they use to put on the tree represented different qualities; for example, a white candle represents the purity of Christ while a pink candle represents joy. The Christmas lights also served to remind Christians to provide light to others. I love decorating and putting up lots of lights but now have another reason for doing so. I always want to show the light of Christ and I can’t think of any easier way to do that. So light up the house and let the light of Christ shine. God loves ya 😉
