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.
