All about the symbols of Christmas and their meaning. Learn the symbols of Christmas and what they mean.
Do you know what all the symbols of Christmas are? It’s easy to forget that all the lights, tinsel, and presents have a reason for being a part of Christmas. Bells, stars, evergreen trees, wreaths, angels, holly, and even Santa Claus are a magical part of Christmas because of their symbolism and special meaning. Each Christmas season, I try to teach a little of this holiday symbolism to my kidlets. There’s no wrong way to teach it. Sometimes it’s just while we decorate. I try to find teaching moments to share the meaning of Christmas with them. For me, knowing there is a deeper meaning to all of the holiday hubbub brings me greater purpose and greater peace during Christmas.

Fill Your Home with Christmas Symbols
One of the ways I try to teach my kids the symbols of Christmas is to fill my house with them. I ordered these beautiful pewter handcrafted ornaments from Wendell August. They are made in the USA and come are dressed up in little boxes. Each ornament has the meaning of the the Christmas symbol on the back. I loved them at first sight. A perfect way to add the true spirit of the season to our Christmas tree.

Talk Often About The Symbols of Christmas and What They Mean
The best way to help kids understand their meaning is to talk about it often. As you decorate the tree, remind them what the symbols mean. Talk about them as you look at Christmas lights around town (“Look there’s an angel all lit up! This reminds us of the angels that proclaimed Jesus’ birth.”). Keep it in regular conversation and Christmas will be more meaningful to your family than ever before.
