Sara Luthy shared this beautiful story, Christmas From Heaven; The True Story of the Berlin Candy Bomber with us today. It is a very touching story in which an American pilot helped heal the wounds of war. The message is that the real spirit of Christmas is to give whatever we have, no matter how small the gift. We then made parachutes with candy attached like in the story.
After reading the story we asked and recorded our answers to the Five W Questions (Who? What? Where? When? Why?).
We also considered the question What was Hal's gift to Jesus? and continue to brainstorm for ideas for our gifts to Jesus. Some ideas were our Christmas Program song, bringing cereal boxes for Haiti and non-perishable items for BC Food Pantry, helping our parents, saying our prayers, and using kind words.
