CHRISTmas always been my favorite holiday.  I loved all the church activities, the CHRISTmas plays, live Nativity Scenes, candle lighting ceremonies and more.  The one thing that always stood out to me was that CHRISTmas meant love!  I have always been able to sit back and FEEL all the LOVE around me.  It just seems to radiate from everyone.  The Nativity story has always been a favorite of my entire family and we read it every year on CHRISTmas Eve to remind everyone about the true meaning of the holiday.

Have you ever wondered why we do all the other things?
Cutting down trees? Hanging stockings? Santa Claus? What do any of these have to do with Jesus' birthday?  More than you'd think!

We were given a copy of the DVD,  Buck Denver asks... Why Do We Call It Christmas to review.
