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.
