The importance of the Christmas story is to tell children of the birth of Christ. It’s a way of getting away from the commercial Christmas that we grow up with.
I remember as a child going to church Christmas Eve. We would all be dress up and go to the pew we always set in at church. If we were in the Christmas play we would be getting dress up as one of the shepherds, wise man, and Joseph and Mary.
Gary Wittmann, storyteller, was asked my Holy Family School, principal, Pam Bell to write a story for the recording to fund the school program. Gary took the birth of Jesus Christ with symbols that we recognize in the story. The dove, donkey, people, shepherds and many others.
