Christmas, family fun and cranberry salad

Joy to the world, the Lord has come! I love Christmas time! It is a joyful time of year. In our Amish culture we don’t celebrate Christmas exactly like our “English” friends, but we do keep Christmas as a remembrance of Jesus’s birth and we have family gatherings with big meals and lots of time for fellowship or games. Christmas carols are sung, such as the old favorite “Silent Night, Holy Night.” I’m so thankful that Jesus did not remain a baby in a manger but that He was willing to shed his blood for all mankind. All honor and glory to Him!
