The RevGalBlogPals Friday Five today is an invitation to name five things that mark the season for me and one thing that doesn't do it for me.
1. Candles, including the "fake" window candles
2. Christmas tree lights, any kind, the more the merrier!
3. The movie "White Christmas"
5. Christmas Eve worship service, especially lighting the Christ candle
The one thing that doesn't do it for me is when those who are most vocal about "Jesus is the reason for the season" tell me that they won't be coming to the Christmas Eve worship service because "family comes first."
