Is the true meaning of Christmas to decorate our homes, stores, offices, and streets with wreaths, Santa Claus, and Christmas trees in red, green, gold, and silver? Lighting up the inside and outside with strands of lights reminding everyone that it is Christmas.
Maybe the true meaning of Christmas is to be in the kitchen cooking up grandma’s traditions. Spend hours preparing special foods, cookies, cakes, and candy to share with friends and family. Many of these foods you only eat at this particular time of year.
Is it the only time of year you go to great lengths to visit friends and family that live all over the world—going by car, boat, train, or plane to see a loved one at Christmas?
It could be that you want everyone you know that you are thinking of them by sending a card, e-card, or a text wishing them a Merry Christmas.
Is the true meaning of Christmas giving? Ensuring everyone you know receives a gift, no matter how big or small, showing you are thinking of them. Christmas is the time of year to give presents, grants, or donations filling Christmas wishes. Volunteering your time to a particular cause or helping someone in need warms our hearts and makes Christmas…Christmas.
Christmas is all of those things but not the TRUE meaning of what Christmas is.
The TRUE meaning of Christmas is the celebration of our Savior. A tiny baby with very humble beginnings on earth was born on this day, our Father’s gift to us. His name is Jesus, and he is the reason for the season to celebrate with thankfulness.
He loves us to make a big deal about him! Everything mentioned above has his approval! Going to extraordinary measures to celebrate his birthday makes his heart warm, knowing we love him and honor him.
This Christmas season, take time to unwind from all the festivities by wishing Jesus a Happy Birthday, and tell him that you will never forget what he grew up to do for us!
Merry Christmas and Celebrate the Good News with old traditions and new ones!
Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you: he is the Messiah, the Lord. Luke 2:11
