"I remember how it felt to be a child. This old house still feels the same. All of the family will be here in just a while. I hope Daddy gets here first to build a fire, he's the only one who has that special touch. Then my sister with her kids and my grandma who I love so very much. Oh I'm glad we'll be together on this evening in December."
An Evening in December
by First Call
We here at Magnolia love celebrating during the Christmas season. It goes without saying that there are a plethora of reasons that make it extra special. Here are a few of our favorite things about this glorious holiday season:
1. The Decorations: The trees, the wreaths, the lights… everything! We love being able to deck the halls with all of the holly we can get our hands on. Our amazing in-house florist decorated nearly all corners of our beautiful home and her work is exquisite.
2. The Sounds: The music of Christmas is absolutely captivating. Whether it’s the sacred songs that point to the Savior or the traditional seasonal songs that remind you of childhood memories, music plays such a major part in the holiday season. If you haven’t already checked it out, take a listen to our Spotify playlist: Christmas with Magnolia. It’s sure to have you sing along with holiday cheer.
3. The Food: Baked goods, chocolate, apple cider, soups, roasts, the list could go on and on. The delicious food that makes up a Christmas feast will leave everyone recalling the meal for years to come. And of course, no Christmas meal would be complete without a roast beast. ;)
4. Traditions: Annual events with family and friends make those evenings in December so sweet. Whether it’s attending local Christmas concerts and parades or theatrical performances, these special occasions not only help build memories to share but also spread Christmas cheer in the community.
More than anything we love that this season is at the core, all about Jesus!
IT'S ALL ABOUT JESUS!
We love being able to glorify God with believers all around the world as we celebrate the birth of Christ, worshiping our great Emmanuel, our God with us. This year, in the midst of all of the good things, remember the greatest thing – the gift of Jesus.
We pray that your Christmas is one to remember for years to come. May the God of all grace bless you with the gift of His son.
Merry Christmas everyone!
