Our Christmas Seder plate

A new tradition for our family:

A Christmas Seder plate.
- lamb shankbone or tiny lamb statue, representing Jesus as the Lamb of God
- a sprig of evergreen, symbolizing new life and hope in the middle of winter
- piece of hay or grass, representing the humility of Jesus, born in humble circumstances
- gold or a small gift, symbolizing that God has given us great gifts
- angel, symbolizing bringing good news from God

I've always been impressed with the way you have melded the two religions in your family. Very nice.
