Symbols of the season:

Christmas Lights = Spiritual Light of Jesus, our Savior, the  Light of the World!

Christmas Tree = Reminder of the wood of the Cross.

Advent Wreath = 4 candles = the centuries awaiting the true Messiah.

All these decorations- symbols have a meaning! They should inspire us to reflect on the mysteries of Our Lord as we prepare ourselves for the Christmas Season which is only about to begin tomorrow!
