Preparing for Christmas …

By definition, it’s the day in witch we remember the birthday of Jesus Christ… the son of god that came to visit our earth… to visit our life… our sad life… to fulfill it with peace & love…
It’s not an economical day… for witch we prepare everything to buy…
It’s not a date for issues related to money…
It’s not a date for Santa…
It’s not a date for anyone…
For the sake of god, it’s Christmas…
Christmas…
We all forgot Jesus… what we are only remembering are Santa, gifts, new wears, parties…
Even the songs of Christmas are becoming empty from Jesus name…

Santa is a good man, maybe a story, of a man giving help for the poor Childs… but are we helping the poorest??…
I’m for sure not against Santa, but I’m against that he replaced Jesus in our brains & thinking…
Santa my brothers, didn’t die for us… he didn’t die to give us the eternal life…

What god wants from us brothers is a new heart not new wears…
New wears cannot make us happy forever, but Jesus makes us happy forever by neglecting this entire material world…

And brothers, the best gift anyone can get, is this holy child that is waiting to be born in our hearts…
Don’t wait for money… don’t wait for anything but him…
Just, you will have a free gift full of love…

Oh! Essentially, please no parties… Christmas is a time of solitude, silence, peace, love, meditation, prays… its Christmas & not peoplemas or moneymas…
And brothers the only music you must hear is the songs of Angels… & repeat with each beat of your heart, Halleluiah…

And please my brothers; Christmas is not a season…
Christmas if real, must be in each day of all the seasons…

So, choose the real way…
Look, & follow the star…
There is only one direction…
There is only one way…
Follow the reality & keep away from materials or…
Or, god will be sorry because you are out…

Merry Christmas…

Yes, I absolutely agree with you Sassine that the true meaning of Christmas is being lost. Many people become occupied with preparing for Christmas and get 'caught up in the hype'.
Christmas is a time to love, a time to pray, a time for peace. It is a time to give. I celebrate Christmas. I celebrate the birth of Christ. And I do it whole-heartedly. I pray. I thank. I remember. I love. I also buy gifts. I also attend Christmas dinners, lunches. I love the thought of Santa. To bring a smile to a child's face is so satisfying. To share in the spirit of giving is gratifying. Sure, many people only do this and forget the reason behind it. But also, many people, like me, do it, sharing in the Christmas spirit, celebrating the birth of our saviour.
