 The tradition of planting paperwhites at Christmas started…. 
“In the eighth century B.C., the Hebrew prophet Isaiah praised the Narcissus tazetta, saying in Isaiah 35 that, “It shall blossom abundantly and rejoice with joy and singing.” In other Hebrew writings, the daffodil, which is in the genus of Narcissus, is a feminine symbol of fertility and beauty. This fertility attribute was taken up by the first Christians in the symbols of death and rebirth as personified in the resurrection of Jesus Christ. To this day, the narcissus and daffodil are often present at Easter celebrations.”

 Christmas is meant to be a season full of happiness and joy with our loved ones. However, since Friday the world has been reeling in shock over the horrifying massacre of the children and adults in Connecticut.
 
The news has saddened me all weekend, and is a  terrible reminder that while we all prepare to celebrate, there are people in the world that have been struck by horrible tragedy and devastating suffering. Pictures and discourse about the magic of Christmas without acknowledging this horror felt wrong to me. So today why don’t we reflect on how blessed we are while remembering there are others that feel as though they have lost their hearts….
