Why red and green at Christmas? The Catholic faith uses red as the color to represent Jesus because of his death on the cross and his blood that was shed for the sins of humanity. Green is the color of nature, representing life, and therefore the hope of eternal life.
“Christmas gift suggestions:
To your enemy, forgiveness.
To an opponent, tolerance.
To a friend, your heart.
To a customer, service.
To all, charity.
To every child, a good example.
To yourself, respect.”- Oren Arnold
In Love, We Are Not Alone
“I am not alone at all, I thought. I was never alone at all. And that, of course, is the message of Christmas. We are never alone. Not when the night is darkest, the wind coldest, the world seemingly most indifferent. For this is still the time God chooses.”- Taylor Caldwell
I would love to hear your thoughts on the black and white image. I know the color image is striking, vibrant, and so happy, but what do you think about the black and white image of the Christmas Cactus?
