Oh Holy Night: A Christmas Theme


The word evokes a sense of expectation and desire…  a longing… and the sometimes fearful risk of believing.


Used as a Christmas theme, Oh Holy Night provides the perfect opportunity to share the story of the first Christmas. When a child-king appeared in a noisy, crowded little town…  and a young girl, surrounded by smelly animals and a really good man, gave birth to Hope.


You could interpret the theme with bright, sparkly stars and lots of glitz, but I much prefer something more simple… more realistic.


Theme elements to consider:

  • Stars
  • Nativity sets and graphics
  • Burlap, straw, hay, grapevine
  • Wood candleholders
  • Ornaments:  stars, angels, “hope”, “peace”, “love”, “joy”
  • Angels


Oh holy night text

She will bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins.  (Matthew 1:21)

Merry Christmas – with Hope always …

from My Place to yours.
