"Red," said Santa "is the first color of Christmas." He pulled forth a red ornament for the tiny tree. "red is deep, intense, vivid. It is the color of the life-giving blood that flows through our veins. It is the symbol of God's greatest gift. Teach the children that Christ gave His life and shed his blood for them that they might have eternal life. When they see the color red, it should remind them of the most wonderful gift."
