I am so excited about the Holidays! Christmas is my favorite holiday. This year’s Christmas will be much different than the years before. We got used to Christmas caroling, but kids are not allowed to go out due to the pandemic. Kids would love to receive toys, but safety is the best gift.
As we get older, we define our own Christmas. Helping and serving other people and God will always be one of the reasons why we celebrate Christmas.
A scout's neckerchief has a lot of purposes. It can be a bandage for yourself or someone else, like a rope to tie something. It also serves as a reminder to glorify God and country, help others, and obey Scout Law. Quite useful for everyday survival.
A holiday neckerchief is an invisible guide for us. We do our duty not just when it is in season, but we do it because we want to. Let us not forget the true meaning of Christmas and a scout. Blessings will come to us if we give them to others.
“Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like, unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.” - Matthew 22:37-39
