The Days of Christmas: Day 14

Read Matt. 2:11--How did the Wise Men show that they knew the young child was the Savior? (Include present shaped chocolates or other tiny gift)
Activity: Christmas Symbols

Katie gave our family home evening lesson on the Christmas symbols. She had cut out pictures of each item to be placed upon a tree that is also a symbol of Christmas. It was a great activity for the kids to do and they learned a little about the symbol or reason for some of the items we use at Christmas. Our list comes from the Especially for Mormons book Volume 2. The symbols are as follows:

  • Green - everlasting hope of mankind (tree)
  • Red - the gift of God (red ornament)
  • Bell - guidance and return
  • Candle - thanks for the star of long ago
  • Candy Cane - the shepherd's crook
  • Wreath - eternal nature of love
  • Star - burning hope of all mankind
  • Gifts - Heavenly Father's gift to all mankind the Saviour
  • Bow - spirit of the brotherhood of man
