Legal-Ease: Magic and miracles of Christmas

For Christians, celebrating Christmas can be a time to recognize the magic of the season. For example, people who have items on layaway for the Christmas season may discover that a stranger has anonymously paid their bill. They might feel like they experienced a miracle.

But to the person who paid the bill, it was just something they do every day. Magic or a miracle to one person might be a simple act to another person.

Similarly, we can make magic or miracles happen in our own lives by making the good decision to plan ahead.

For Christians, celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ is nothing less than overwhelming. Although we all face struggles, people often recognize the magic of Christmas and how miraculous things are more likely to happen this time of the year.

For example, during this Christmas season, many people have had their layaway items at various stores anonymously paid. The people who have had their layaway items paid for can feel like they experienced a miracle.
