Christmas Symbols (nonfiction)
By Brenda B. Covert
  

1     You know it's the Christmas season without anyone telling you! You see, hear, and smell the Christmas clues all around you. The things that tell you Christmas is coming are symbols. They are symbols of Christmas.
 
2     Your eyes light up with the decorations. Red lights, white lights, and multicolored lights outline houses. They are draped over bushes and around trees. They are like tiny stars that twinkle in the night. Those lights are a part of our Christmas season. They make everything seem pretty and magical!
 
3     Christmas trees are another wonder of the season. They are draped with tinsel, garland, and lights. They are topped with stars or angels or bows. Their branches are filled with ornaments of all sizes, shapes, and colors. The people of Germany were the first to decorate trees for the holiday.
