Christmas Cheer 2012!

“A man can no more diminish God’s glory by refusing to worship Him than a lunatic can put out the sun by scribbling the word,
‘darkness’ on the walls of his cell.”
~ C.S. Lewis

Jesus is the reason for the season.  The following is a list of Christmasy music and stories my family enjoys during this holiday season:

MISCELLANEOUS CHRISTMAS RESOURCES

CHRISTMAS RESOURCES AT OUR LIBRARY

Oooooh, so many resources.  So little time!   My husband is very sentimental so we HAVE to watch zillions Christmas movies in December.   Here are just a few:

  • A search for “Christmas music CD” has 766 titles at the library.
  • A search for “Christmas stories DVD” has 2766 titles at the library.
  • A search for “Christmas around the world from world book” has 109 titles at the library.
  • The Nativity Story, 2007 video – Not completely as recorded in the Bible, but inaccuracies are very small.
  • The Adventure of Christmas:  Helping children find Jesus in our holiday traditions: mom’s guide by Lisa Whelchel, 2004
  • Christianity:  Worship, festivals, and ceremonies from around the world by Trevor Barnes, 2005 – “Tells the story of Jesus and examines how different festivals, including Christmas and Easter, are celebrated around the globe, while exploring the many divisions within Christianity and the architecture of the world ‘s great cathedrals and churches.”

EVENTS IN DECEMBER

I am too busy to list all the December events so I am compiling them here.

NOT CHRISTMASY, BUT WE ENJOY THESE AT CHRISTMAS TIME

I HAVEN’T REVIEWED THESE RESOURCES, YET

These look interesting, but I don’t know if they are good resources:

“Do you know what hurts so very much? It’s love.
Love is the strongest force in the world, and when it is blocked that means pain. There are two things we can do when this happens.
We can kill that love so that it stops hurting. But then of course part of us dies, too. Or we can ask God to open up another route for that love to travel.”
Corrie ten Boom, The Hiding Place

Merry Christmas!   Jesus is the reason for the season!
