FHE Lesson {Symbols of Christmas}



Opening Song: Have a Very Merry Christmas #51

Opening Prayer:

Lesson:

What is this? {point to your Christmas tree or a picture of one}
Why do we have Christmas Trees at Christmas? {enjoy their varied answers}

The Christmas Tree is a symbol of Christmas because :
The evergreen tree means lasting light and life. As many things die in winter but the evergreen does not, it symbolizes life in the midst of death or rebirth. The evergreen with its unchanging color represents the hope of eternal life in Jesus. Its needles point heavenward as a reminder that man's thoughts should turn heavenward as well

Talk about why you like to put a star or angel on the top of your tree.

Read this scripture to go with your discussion.
Luke 2:9-12 for Angel
Matthew 2:2 for Star


Activity:

Make some decorations for your tree.
Stars or angels or pictures of Jesus printed and coloured.

If your tree is up sit with the lights out with just the tree lights on and spend some quiet time admiring your tree and talking about why you love to have a tree at Christmas
