Just because it’s Christmas, don’t think you can escape some Christmas mirth.
One of the misconceptions about being a Christian is non-Christians think we don’t know how to have fun or have a sense of humor. Trust me, if the Big Guy can have a sense of humor when it comes to dealing with us mere mortals, so can we.
The difference for Christians is we don’t have to debase ourselves or others to generate a smile. Laughter at life or ourselves is a gift from God.
So, let’s get in the Christmas spirit and smile a little!
They Never Die
Christmas fruitcakes are a tradition in some families. But I think it is best described this way. “It will dwell in your house and my house and theirs forever and ever.” The best part was you make only “one.” It would be rewrapped and given as a present to first one, then to another. As far as I know, it’s still being passed around.
And now for the bonus …
Four year old Terrence piqued everyone’s interest when he placed a childishly wrapped package under the tree for each family member. On Christmas morning, Terrence looked on with joy and expectation as the family opened his gifts. There were exclamations of “I thought I’d lost that!” and “So that’s where that went!” When asked why he had wrapped their favorite items, he replied, “Because I knew it was something you would really want!”
THOUGHT TO REMEMBER: Santa Claus is anyone who loves another and seeks to make them happy; who gives himself by thought or word or deed in every gift that he bestows. – Edwin Osgood Grover
