When we decorate the tree, decorate it with lights, carefully place the star and arrange the presents around it, do we think about the symbolism of all this. Why do we do it? Why does this bring us festive mood, sunny emotion and incomparable joy?

My family and I, with faith, with hope, with love, with gratitude and with trembling anticipation, prepare to celebrate the day on which our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ was born, and with excitement we remember the symbols of the decoration.

The Christmas tree - the evergreen tree we decorate is a symbol of our eternal Lord, Who came from eternity, became one of us, lived on earth among us, died for us, rose again for us and ascended again into eternity, from where he daily prays before God for us and sends us his gracious gifts. Jesus Christ is the source of eternal life.

The little angels with which we decorate streets, squares or which we place on the Christmas tree remind us of the heavenly angels who announce the good news:
