Soldiers on Parade

Toy soldiers on parade
I always loved toy soldiers the Christmas tree.
They reminded me that the king had to be protected and honored and he in turn kept the people blessed.
 This was the idea of kings. They had to defend the people, feed them and keep them safe.
In life however it was not always so.
Some kings were good and others were overwhelming.
In todays' world some leaders are good and some overwhelming.

Celebrating Christmas is to celebrate the birth of a different nature.

It is celebrating an idea that man could have charity and love for all mankind and that there also is a
spirit or understanding in every person that knows right from wrong
and not only that.

It also means that as a member of an orderly society, just because you can, doesn't mean you should.
Some things in life should not be messed with like for example genetic mutation, adding chemicals to food people have no control over but must eat and putting pollutants in the air and water which kill people..

Yes Christmas is a celebration of a baby sent to us to remind us that man is just a fragile as a new born babe in swaddling clothes lying in a lowly manger.
Swaddling clothing are clothe wrapped around a person and tied with bandages.

Today when kids are born, nurses still wrap them up tight so they feel cozy and warm. There are no laws that say they should do this . It is just an understanding.
Some things never change.

Concordo. O Natal deveria ser todo dia, ambiente de paz, tolerância e aconchego para todos os seres humanos em qualquer lugar do planeta... e para a natureza também.

❥ Bom fim de semana!

Gattina lol most new borns look grumpy but this one looks like its a doll dressed up in swaddling clothing.
I never knew what swaddling was and now I do. I guess people also wore swaddling shoes way back when.
