Christmas is many things to many people, beyond the main reason for the season, the celebration of the birth of Jesus, which we’ve spent several episodes talking about, and which tomorrow’s show will certainly be focused upon.
For much of the world, Christmas is a common touchstone for us, the one day of the year that we all look forward to and cherish. It’s the date on the calendar that is consistent. Different nations have different national holidays, and there are 365 different days of the year that birthdays are celebrated, but Christmas is the same for us all. December 25th is a day where we stop, gather the family around, and bask in the joy and hope and the love. Over the years, we build up memories of this special day. We might remember our first bicycle, our first train set, first puppy, our prettiest christmas tree, the list could go on forever. And then there are the bittersweet memories.
So, with all the hustle and busy-ness that you may still be in the midst of with those last minute shopping trips, or as you’re preparing for the Christmas meal that you’ll share tomorrow with your family, let’s listen to some memories from a few Lifespring! Why Christmas listeners…
