Celebrate Winter

Kit: All These Pretty Things by Adelina Biswas and A-liya
Santa's Big Secret, Adorable
With the arrival of winter, many relish in the cold weather and snow for skiing, while others celebrate the winter solstice, and many children the coming of Santa Claus, and others the season to celebrate our Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ's birth. Whatever you celebrate, we wish you peace, joy, hope, and love.
