Christmas

Christmas is the second most holy holiday for Christians (Holy Week being the first). During this season we celebrate the birth of the Savior Jesus Christ and remember his miraculous birth, and the beautiful story of those who came to worship the Lord. The birth of Jesus teaches us valuable messages, messages of the faithful witnesses of the birth of Christ. Below are several of my blog posts relating to Advent and Christmas.
