christmas in france

Christmas in France

In France, yule logs made out of cherry wood are often burned in French homes. The log is carried into the home on Christmas Eve and is sprinkled with red wine to make the log smell nice when it is burning.

There is a custom that the log and candles are left burning all night with some food and drinks left out in case Mary and the baby Jesus come past during the night.

o holy night13

O Holy Night

It was translated into English by the American Unitarian minister John Sullivan Dwight in 1855. He was an ardent abolitionist and favoured the reference in the third verse: "for the slave is our brother". It became a very popular carol in the anti-slavery North during the Civil War.

o holy night14

O Holy Night

O Holy Night

Fall on your knees Oh hear the angel voices Oh night divine Oh night when Christ was born Oh night divine Oh night divine

o holy night18

o holy night19

O Holy Night

Truly He taught us to love one another His law is love and His gospel is peace Chains shall He break for the slave is our brother And in His name all oppression shall cease Sweet hymns of joy in grateful chorus raise we, Let all within us praise His holy name.

Christians who live in the plains decorate mango or banana trees at Christmas time. Some of them also decorate their houses with mango leaves. However in some of the other parts of India, a lot of people use small clay oil-burning lamps as Christmas decorations. These small clay lamps are placed on the edges of flat roofs and on the tops of walls.

Moravian Christmas

The Christingale candle used to be held on a goose quill, part of which was split into fronds, on which were impaled nuts, fruits, raisins and sweets. These stood for the created order over which Christ is King, and for the fruits of the earth and the benefits that come to our lives through God's bounty and goodness.

So far with the Star - Maranatha Christian School

The wise men express their determination to follow the star in spite of the challenges of the journey; their commitment is rewarded by what they find when they finally reach the stable.

so far with the star
So far with the Star

Where are we going, following a star? Travelling on, it seems so far - I don't know, but we'll go so far with the star.. I don't know, but we'll go so far with the star.

Riding along at ten at night Following a star that's just in sight - I don't know...

Just can't stand all the dust in my eyes And all of those wretched horrible flies I don't know...

so far with the star67
So far with the Star

Where will we sleep, where will we rest? Straw on the floor, whatever is best - I don't know...

What will we find at the end of the line? Will there be answers, peace of mind? I don't know...

The star's slowing down, it's our journey's end Stopped at a stable - will I find a friend? I don't know...

The stable door is open wide! The Light of the World is just inside! Now we know, yes we know - We followed the star! Now we know, yes we know - We followed the star!
