Purple Christmas

A confessional about Christmas at my house: It’s decked in purple, splashes of pink, silver and crystal. I just love purple. It’s so regal and lovely, and easy to look at. I’m also not too fond of red for some reason. Anyway, moving on-in looking for a reason to bring up Christmas in purple, we were looking for the connection to Christ, and it came up nicely-we sat at church right in front of the Advent wreath! For those who do not know, the advent wreath has three purple candles, one pink candle, and a white candle for Christmas Eve, being the Christ candle. It also has been done in evergreen, symbolizing eternal life. SO….why is my Christmas Tree white? (It looks kind of pink with the filter, but it’s white.) Simple-the white Christmas Tree represents the white Christ Candle in the Advent Wreath. It’s all very easy to symbolize. So there it is, my low-stress, Purple Christmas.
