Day 4 – Google Gave Me the Giggles

Bethlehem Scene at Church (Hubby's photo)

The Google homepage doodle wants to go caroling. I’m game; I love Christmas carols. I pressed all the little buttons–boxes–and each box changed to a Christmas animation. Cute. A bell, snowflake and snowman. Then a candle, gift and Santa. With all of the display in view, the doodle danced to Jingle Bells. I couldn’t help but giggle. Jingle Bells is okay, but I like Christmas hymns. ‘Joy to the World’, ‘Silent Night’, and ‘O Come, O Come Immanuel’. They focus my mind on the true reason for Christmas. The Google doodle celebrates with six symbols of Christmas. Perhaps ‘Xmas’ is more appropriate, since there’s no sign of the baby Jesus. But that’s okay, too, because Jesus is bigger than the Google doodle, and He’s not a baby anymore.

Standing in church singing songs that commemorate the birth of Jesus, the Savior, fills me with joy. To think that God so loved the world that He gave His only son that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life (John 3:16).

Christmas Day is almost here, and my anticipation is building. Sightseeing has been halted, and shopping is finished. It’s time to read the real Christmas story (Luke 2) and enjoy the holiday.

Merry Christmas!
