Merry Christmas to all!

25 Dec

The halls were decked and the stockings were hung…

Like most homes, each of our decorations has a meaning or memory–an interest of our children, a place we’ve visited, a significant experience, something we value, etc. One of the more significant ornaments on the tree is The Christmas Nail. It comes with the following poem and/or instructions:

“This is the Christmas Nail. It is to be hung on a sturdy branch, a branch near the trunk, a branch that will hold such a spike without being noticed by well-wishers dropping by to admire one’s tinseled tree. The nail is known only to the home that hangs it. Understood only by the heart that knows its significance. It is hung with the thought: The Christmas tree but foreshadows the Christ tree which only He could decorate for us, with nails such as this.”
