Mike and Molly and Baby at Advent
Christmas is the celebration of Jesus' birth. It's quite a bit like a birthday party. We don't usually have a birthday cake at Christmas but we do have the candles. Do you remember what the candles mean?
Tune: I am so glad each Christmas Eve
I am so glad each Christmas Eve,
The night of Jesus' birth!
Then like the sun the Star shone forth,
And angels sang on earth.
He dwells again in heaven's realm,
The Son of God today;
And still he loves his little ones
And hears them when they pray.
