The True Meaning of Christmas

Christmas to us is all about Christ. He is the TRUE meaning of Christmas! My sister, Lisa, wrote a story about the first Christmas long ago and what it means to us. The story is in two columns, one in English and the other in Portuguese.

  • (is) all about = tem como significado principal/maior
  • true meaning = verdadeiro significado
  • long ago = muitos anos atrás
  • mean(s) = significa
