The Coca Cola Truck


Most children nowadays seem to connect the above truck and Santa Claus with Christmas, I even seen one for Aldi supermarkets and The John Lewis advert (and yes as a young Christian I to also thought santa was real until one year my mother and father decided to put central heating in the house blocking off the chimney.

Whilst I am out carolling each year with The Salvation Army Band I am always amazed by the amount of people adults and children alike stop and listen even if it is for a few moments.

Let us not forget that ‘Jesus is the reason for the season’ a baby born to Mary and Joseph in a stable in Bethlehem

Mathew 1 V 21 “She will bear a Son; and you shall call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins.”

      The blog was a reblog, I am now 62 and used to be part of a small S.A band until Covid struck. On top of that my Epilepsy /Cerebral palsy was getting worse. Now we have no band but still a small songsters brigade

    I hope you weren’t traumatized to see the chimney blocked off! It must be a delight to bring the story of our Savior, Jesus, to people out and about, as you sing the carols. The Salvation Army accomplishes wonderful work in his Name! P.S. Thank you for reblogging one of my posts. I am honored!
