So.....I get the idea of have an outdoor nativity...it brings back the reason for the season.

But can someone please explain what this is about.......

It's Noah's Ark....for Christmas??? Um.....someone please explain! I'm a little confused....what on earth does this have to do with Christmas? I mean....it's cute and all but...I think people get to caught up in decorating for Christmas (and this is coming from someone who LOVES decorating for Christmas) and not enough time celebrating the true meaning of it.
We have Black history month, 9/11, Hispanic heritage month, Perl Harbor and even Presidents Day, which through the entire month TV is showing history show about why we need to remember them...but with Christmas it's about spending money and decorating...
Christmas needs to go back and be about Jesus. Jesus came into this world pure and innocent...and he died for us still pure and innocent. He died for me, and he died for you. Even if you don't want to celebrate Christmas the way it should be, maybe you dress up as Santa...please just take one moment and remember the true meaning of Christmas!

The song of the day is Nestor the long-eared Christmas donkey, by Marty Robins (it's from Nestor the long-eared Christmas Donkey movie-one of my Christmas Favorites!!)

All is Calm and all is bright! Merry Christmas my dear readers!
