A Beacon of Light In A Dark World
Lighthouses are a traditional symbol for Christmas cards, a beacon of light and hope in a dark world. If you are looking for something meaningful and symbolic of peace and hope, there can be none better than this icon that guided sailors to a safe harbor. Below I give some information on lighthouses, their increasing popularity as Christmas symbols, and a selection of lighthouse Christmas cards.
The Symbolism of Lighthouses For Christmas
I love lighthouses, and find in them a symbol of the light of peace and hope. When sailors went on ships on the ancient seas, they had little to guide them to their destination. Lighthouses became those landmarks that kept them headed in the right direction to a safe harbor. As such, they’ve become that sort of guide for many of us in our daily lives. Many people look upon them as the light of Christ shining through the darkness, an appropriate meaning for Christmastime. Lighthouse cards with this symbol are popular and easier to find these days.
