Once again, it is “Christmas in July.” Check out Hallmark channel if you don’t believe this. Last night there was a movie on about a small town in Alaska over which Santa Claus presided in disguise. The actress who was cast in the role of a heroine who rediscovered Christmas and found true love in “Garland”* with the son of Santa, is well-known for her testimony for Christ. The last image shown was Santa’s little buggy hurrying off, silhouetted against a full moon.

*The religious significance of garlands was evident in the European Middle Ages (c.5th–15th centuries) when they were hung on religious statues. The Hindus in India also attach a spiritual meaning to flowers, wearing and adorning their statues with blessed garlands. Encyclopædia Britannica online
