Christmas...Christ's Birthday.....

Let us not forget the reason for Christmas. It's Jesus' birthday. Come, let us adore Him, Christ the King.

It's all well and good to celebrate with Santa and gifts; as long as we remember the real reason for this special day.

Happy birthday, to Christ our King.

Till next time.....
