The Spirit of Christmas
Each year this is a Festive time of year for many people in the world. Christians celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ with Christmas. Many others celebrate Christmas as a time to give gifts and spend family time. Whatever you religious persuasion as the year draws to an end it is a great time to spend with family and reflect on what is important to oneself.
As the year draws to the end I like to reflect on what is important to me. Firstly I like to reflect on the real Spirit of Christmas. Christmas is the Celebration of the birth of Jesus and how special it is when new life comes into the world. Jesus came to the world and gave so much…. There are many lessons from his life for us to learn, thousands of years later.
The spirit of Christmas is also about family. It is a great time to spend with the family without all the normal distractions of life. It seems that quality time with the family is at a premium in today’s fast paced world. I find it important to allocate some blocks of time during the year for family. Christmas is one such prefect time for Family.
Forgetting the commercial side of Christmas, which I am not a fan of, there is also a special feeling about Christmas time. This Spirit of Christmas is a sharing and beautiful time. People tend to be friendlier and more willing to share. This caring atmosphere is additive. Beauty also comes from the Christmas lights and Decorations displayed in streets, homes and buildings…. Christmas is such a beautiful time of the year.
Though Christmas was a few days ago, I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and I hope that you received and will continue to receive many blessings ……
