The time has come again. It’s December, a month that brings along the joy of Christmas. Christmas is a religious festival of Christians. They celebrate this festival to commemorate the birth of Lord Jesus Christ. It is celebrated annually on 25th December.
Christmas is a season of great joy. It is a time of God showing His great love for us. It can be a time of healing and renewed strength. You see, Christmas is when we celebrate the birth of the Christ child. God sent His Son, Jesus, into the world to be born. His birth brought great joy to the world. Shepherds, wise men, and angels all shared in the excitement of knowing about this great event.
They knew this was no ordinary baby. The prophets had told of His coming hundreds of years before. The star stopped over Bethlehem just to mark the way for those who were looking for this special child.
On this day, people go to churches, decorate houses and Christmas tree, some like having dinner with family and friends, some make a snowman, make cards and send letters, go for shopping etc.
But have we ever thought that what is the true meaning of Christmas? Is it the gifts under the tree, the lights in the windows, the cards in the mail, turkey dinners with family and friends, snow in the yard, stockings hanging in the living room a nd children waiting eagerly for santa to come and give gifts, and shouts of “Merry Christmas” to those who pass us in the streets?
Is this really Christmas? Is Christmas nothing more than this? Is this what Christmas really means?
Many of us think that it is! But it is not! The true meaning of Christmas lies in the spirit of sharing, loving, caring and helping those who are in need. So make your Christmas even more bright and colourful by bringing these moral values in your life.!!!!!
