The Christmas story is an ancient one, celebrating a promise of hope and bright futures.  I love to use these songs to teach my children what Christmas means to me – not flashing lights and sales, but the potential we all possess.  All human beings have the potential to become better, show mercy, and transform into beings worthy of the world we hope for.  As Ben Stein says, love and peace are the highest values, something which all of us can share.

The true reason for the season.
