Collab with Diamond: The Meaning of Christmas Decorations | Blogmas Day 18

Hello and welcome! It’s Blogmas day 18!

In today’s post, I’ll be collabing with Diamond @ I Have 12% of A Plan! For those of you who aren’t following her, Diamond is such a kind blogger who loves Jesus, bullet journaling, Marvel, and more (do those loves sound familiar..? We’re almost the same, haha)! Her posts are so fun to read and they make my day! Please, please follow her if you’re not already! You won’t regret it!

For our collab, we’ll be researching the meaning of different Christmas decor and how they relate to Christ! We each gave each other pictures of our Christmas decor, and chose three decor pieces we’d like to research! And to make it interesting, we both decided to do the Christmas tree. This is such a unique collab idea and I’m so excited!

Throughout the season, there are so many decorations that are everywhere! It wasn’t until this year that I became interested in what they actually mean, so I’ll be sharing what I found today!

Bible Verse: Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go. -Joshua 1:9

Prayer Prompt: Pray for a grandparent for an elderly person in your life.

Christmas Tree

I love your tree, Diamond!

The Christmas tree means many things. The first is that the triangle’s appearance and its three sides that represent the trinity (God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit). I never thought of it like that, but that’s really neat!

The classic Christmas tree is an evergreen tree. The evergreen, meaning forever green, represents the eternal/forever life we receive when we accept Him!

There are also more hidden meanings in the decor that’s placed won’t get into today.

Christmas Countdown/Advent Calendars

First of all, Diamond’s countdown is so cute!

The meaning of this decoration is quite simple. It represents the coming of Jesus’s birth. His birth was waited for for so long, and Christmas countdowns reflect our long-awaited savior. We countdown the days until the 25th, which is not Jesus’s actual birthday because no one knows the day, and we celebrate His arrival. The same goes for advent calendars.

Nativity Scene

Wow, this is such a beautiful nativity set! I love the lights.

This may seem obvious, but it’s so important. The nativity scene represents the picture of Jesus’s birth. There’s baby Jesus by Mary and Josephs’s side along with the shepherds, sheep, Wiseman, the star, and other animals. I absolutely love having nativity scenes in my home because they remind me of the actual reason for Christmas. Jesus Christ.

Those are the three pieces of decor I decided to include today. I learned a lot when I researched the meanings of these decorations, and I hope you did too.

Thank you so much for reading! And thank you, Diamond, for collabing with me! Go check out Diamond’s part of the collab here! And please follow her!
