Symbols you can print - for your tree
Some parishes decorate a JESSE tree (Christmas) in the parish with baby
clothing to give to a organization for
unwed mothers instead.
You can share the meaning of ADVENT, a more important and meaningful Season by creating a JESSE TREE in a classroom or at home.
The JESSE Tree - is a tree, or banner with a picture of a tree that is decorated every week with ornaments that represent Old Testament events from Creation to the Birth of Jesus.  (See the story of the Jesse Tree - from the bible )
It's truly a ADVENT TREE - representing the waiting for the MESSIAH- while letting the Christmas Tree be more of the meaning of  CHRISTMAS.
