Red & Green Countdown : Christmas Chronicles

Christmas is only 12 days away.  
Because I am a big kid at heart I love to countdown with anticipation of Christmas morning.

Christmas is often associated with the colors red and green.  The theory of these two colors representing Christmas are because of the reason we celebrate the holiday in the first place.  

It is because of Jesus Christ that we "deck the halls" with red and green.
The green represents Christ's eternal life just as the evergreen trees remain green all winter long.  The red represents his blood shed during the crucifixion.

As we count down the days to Christmas (YES I know you're supposed to begin on the 25th and carry on for 12 days after) I will be looking at a pair of red and green color parallels I have of Cutch.
These are the 2020 Chronicles Spectra.  
The green has a more unique design and pops more despite a higher print run.  The red is basically a red superfractor design.
They are numbered to 49 and 25 copies respectively.
Here's the pair of Cards perched on the Christmas tree. 

I will probably watch The Christmas Chronicles tonight with Mrs CollectingCutch.  Each day we try to do something "Christmasy" in December.


Nehemiah 8:10
"Do not grieve, for the joy of the Lord is your strength."
