With Christmas approaching many people have begun shopping and preparing for the wonderful day. The toy stores are busy with frustrated parents trying to find that must have toy. As the department stores become crowded, shoppers will become ruder as the day draws near. Credit cards are being max out by people who will later regret how they spent and will complain about interest rates. Some people are actually dreading Christmas, because they believe the holidays are stressful and overwhelming. It appears Christmas has become a commercial holiday. Society looks at it as a way to stimulate the economy. Society has taken the Christ out of Christmas. What is the true meaning of Christmas?
Do not let Christmas become a hassle. Christmas is a holy day celebrated by Christian around the world. We celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. Jesus is the ultimate Gift given by God to a virgin named Mary.
Some have taken the Christ out of Christmas, by writing or speaking Xmas. Do not take the Christ out of Christmas. Instead, celebrate Christmas by smiling at someone. Feeding someone that is hungry. Provide shelter for someone that sleeps under the stars. Christmas is a season of giving.
