The Twelve Days of Christmas: Day 1

Jeremy's Status Message Proudly Presents The Twelve Days of Christmas:

On the first day of Christmas,
My neighbors gave to me,
A giant sleigh with a Snoopy.

Explanation: MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Snoopy and the gang did bring us the following Christmas moment from Luke 2:8-14.



As we read further in the book of Luke, today's status message becomes clear:

When the angels had left them and gone into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, "Let's go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has told us about. And we shall plant a lawn, and upon that lawn, we shall place a giant wooden sleigh, taller than the tallest man and crafted in the finest wood available to people of our station. And upon that sleigh, that glorious sleigh draped with lights aplenty, we shall place a giant glowing Snoopy in a Santa hat. The Snoopy shall glow brighter than the moon and the stars and even the mighty inflatable candy cane merry-go-round across the street." And so they hurried off and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby, who was lying in the manger. When they had seen him, they built their giant sleigh and placed their glowing Snoopy upon it and he was brighter than the sun itself. All who saw were amazed at what the shepherds had built.

So, should you wander into my neighborhood this holiday season and see a giant Snoopy in front of one of the houses, now you know the biblical significance of this glorious creation.

Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good day.

Yeah, I think that scans better.

Everything else is pretty much the way I was educated in Sunday School.
