It’s an Update on my Advent calendar this Saturday !
It’s days 6-7-8 :
My homemade pockets are matched with coordinated Christmas paper ,picture and number.
Inside each pocket is an ATC card with a picture and story. This one the red bird from the Snowman.
The cardinals are a symbol of faith and warmth with their bright red color in the dreary days of winter, during which time Christmas comes. Their red color is also a symbol or reminder of blood Jesus Christ shed for us on the cross. That’s why the cardinal is so often seen on Christmas cards and as decorations on trees, wreaths, and garlands as well as painted on shop windows in winter or Christmas scenes.
