What Christmas Is & Is not

It Isn't about:

1) It is not about the Santa Claus that appears these days as a default logo during Christmas season

2) It is neither abt the Christmas tree nor the star that hangs in front of the house.

3) It is not about plum cakes & new clothes.

4) It is not about all-night parties.

The media and the society portray Christmas as yet another day to party & exchange gifts during the holiday season, in effect the real-meaning of Christmas is lost somewhere. It is analogous to a person arranging a huge banquet for a King and not inviting him. How good is that???

It Is about:

God’s love for mankind. A love so pure & lasting, that He sent His Son Jesus Christ to die for us and to save us from our sins [which would end in death otherwise]. And a time for us to realise, repent of our sins and accept Him so that we might live and walk with Him every day.
