What's Up at the Library?
The library staff would like to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a joyous New Year. It is easy to forget the true meaning of Christmas with all the festivities of the holiday season. As you spread a little Christmas cheer this season we would encourage you to season it with a bit of holiday traditions that are often overlooked. Starting with the Christmas wreath, did you know that the circular shape represents eternity and wreaths hung on doors or in windows are a symbolic invitation for the spirit of Christmas to fill our homes with the joy of the season? We can also easily see the shape of the candy cane as the crook of the staff the shepherds carried when they visited baby Jesus. The shepherds used the staff to gently lead the sheep to food or water and keep them from danger. Christmas lights and candles remind us of the true source of all light and that Jesus Christ is the light of the world. For centuries candles have brought brightness and warmth into the Christmas season. These are only a few Christmas symbols and traditions that are part of our holiday experience. Find some time this year to research holiday traditions you hold near, here...at the library.
