Christmas can mean so many things for each of us. Maybe its spending time with family and loved ones or so many other meanings. Christmas for me is about the birth of our Lord and saviour Jesus Christ first and most inportantly. I remember as a child it all seemed so much more simpler and not all the expectations that seem to come with the season now. I think we spend so much time now trying to live up to what the media and magazines tell us it should be like the perfectly decorated house, the perfect presents, the perfectly wrapped package,the perfect table setting and meal, that we get caught up in it all and it can be overwhelming and then the true meaning is lost somewhere in all the hustle and bustle. I can remember when i was a little girl,(a long time ago) going to church service for the christmas play. How exciting and meaningful it was. Beautiful music, Mary and Joseph and the sweet baby Jesus. Always at the end of the service we would all get a bag of goodies consisting of an apple, orange,nuts and a candy cane. Where did all that go ? I miss it and the warm and wonderful feeling it gave at Christmas time. As the special day aproaches i just want to say to all my friends ,Merry Christmas to you and your families, may we never forget the true meaning of Christmas and forever keep it close to our hearts.
I would love for you to leave me a comment and tell me what Christmas means to you.
