Are you excited? It’s the Christmas season! What does it mean? What is the true meaning of Christmas? Who do you think Christmas is for?
We celebrate Christmas to commemorating the birth of Jesus Christ. We observe it primarily every 25th of December. However, the big question here is, do you really know what Christmas is all about?
“I am not sure”, my niece responded when I asked her the real meaning of Christmas. This annual festival is the most famous one. Everyone knows about it. From the South to the North Pole, they know about Christmas.
But, let me tell you this. You are not celebrating the real Christmas if you are not practicing the following. Christmas is not just an event in our lives. Moreover, Christmas is not also only about gifts, lanterns, Christmas trees, and Santa Claus. Well, they are part of it but, they are not the real message of Christmas.
The Real Message of Christmas
It is getting colder and colder. What does it mean to me? It is the Christmas season! in my country, the Philippines, we start celebrating Christmas in September. Funny, I know. When ‘ber’ months start, we start counting too. Ber months are the signals of Christmas. However, many of us don’t know yet why we celebrate Christmas. So, I made a conclusion on the top real messages of Christmas!
Christmas is about peace
This is very important. The true meaning of Christmas is making peace. Stop fighting. Begin your new year’s resolutions on Christmas- stop hatred. Make friends. It is time to hug each other as we are all brothers and sisters. God created us as one.
Christmas is also about giving
Don’t get me wrong. Giving doesn’t mean material things. Actually, yes, it can be but not necessarily. Giving can mean donations from the heart. Received plenty of graces this year? I am sure you saved something for Christmas. Then share them. Find a charity or someone to help. I am sure you won’t be poor sharing some of your blessings.
Also, Christmas is giving love
Christmas is love! Yes, you read it right, love. Love is the most important message of Christmas. Forget about everything except love. Love one another. There are different ways to show love. I am sure, you are aware of that.
So, always remember this. Let us love one another and celebrate Christmas with peace.
Merry Christmas everyone!
