The Colors of Christmas: White

The Colors of Christmas: White



Bing sang what many of us think: “I’m dreaming of a

White Christmas.” White is often associated with purity and peace in western

cultures. The snow of winter is also very

white! White paper wafers were also sometimes used to decorate paradise trees.

The wafers represented the bread eaten during communion when Christians

remember that Jesus died for them. Many orthodox churches use white as the color

of Christmas, when their altar is covered with a white cloth. This is not as

common in our culture, but many lessons can be learned from this color.

When we see white decorations, think of the purity

that Christ had as a perfect sacrifice. Remember that we should strive to be

pure as Christ.
