Christmas is a very meaningful time for Bob and me -- it begins with putting our nativity scene on our lawn for all to see who drive by!
Jesus is the reason for the season and that to us is the most important reason for celebrating!
It’s about church, family, lighting up our homes and decorating!
The first few years of my life, we celebrated Sinter Klaas as they did in Holland on December 5th. When I got to school age my Mom and Dad added Christmas on the 25th, but still kept the Dutch tradition!
We pray everyone has a Blessed Christmas!.
