Christmas Eve Superstitions

Two thousand years ago, the night of Jesus' birth was full of magic. The baby whose birth had been foretold hundreds of years before was born to a virgin. A star appeared in the sky, signaling His birth. An angel appeared to shepherds in the fields to tell them that they would find the baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger. This baby would save the world from sin and restore a right relationship with the Father. Then the sky was filled with angels praising God. What could be more exciting than to spend Christmas Eve reflecting on the Savior's birth?

Still, through the ages, people have constructed their own beliefs about that night. Many are fantasy stories told to children. Others are superstitions that seem to give us control over or a look into future events.

Christmas Eve is indeed a magical night. It is a time when I like to reflect on the gift of life that the Savior gave me and to know that the Father holds my life in His loving hands. He has plans for me - plans to prosper me and not to harm me - plans to give me hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11
I'll leave the details to Him.
