Cardinals have long been associated with Christmas because of their beautiful red color. They have become a symbol of the beauty and warmth of the holiday season and to see this bird on a cloudy winter day brings cheer, hope and inspiration. Their red plumage also remind us to focus on faith because its representation of the blood of Christ shed for the redemption of humankind. I love the holidays because they remind us of the blessings we must be thankful and to renew our faith in humankind.
I hope this card inspires you in your holiday card-making.
