“Mama,” Little Cub asked one night. “Who ‘vented Christmas? Was it Santa?”
“No,” Mama Bear said. “God invented Christmas. God gave us Christmas.”
“Is God more important than Santa?”
“Oh yes, much more important!” Mama said with a smile
“What is that?” Little Cub asked in wonder as she watched the dancing lights in the sky.
“That is God at work, Little Cub. He sent his only Son as a baby so that we would know light from dark. Jesus is the light of the world. Jesus is how God gave us Christmas.”
