Carols by candle light, tinsel, brightly wrapped presents and family coming to stay is what sparks Christmas delight into people of all ages! December is the month of JOY!
Last night truly did spark some Christmas joy. Carols by Candle light is always good family fun. Singing all the traditional carols, sharing a laugh with a loved one and best of all, swinging our candles high up in the air keeping time with the music!
Then...the fireworks! One second it was quiet, the next...CRACK!! I jump three centimetres off the ground. The deafening cracks and booms of the fireworks have the little ones covering their ears. Dazzling sparks of colourful fire strewn across the inky black sky!
Short notice Christmas parties always push the 'stress' button. Finding an outfit to wear that is not only perfect for the occasion but comfortable as well can be a little tricky!

December is the season for caroling, laughing, shopping and having fun with family and loved ones. But the most important thing about December is remembering what happened 2000 years ago in a loud, smelly stable. The birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ. Just think for a moment why we celebrate this event? What would have happened to this world today if Jesus had never been born? For many that answer remains to be seen. Help someone open their eyes to Jesus for the first time this December. Believe it or not, your eyes will open too. Let Jesus be in your thoughts this season!
