Meaning Of Christmas


There is only 61 days till Christmas. The most expensive holiday of the year. Unfortunately Christmas is no longer traditional- most people spend the day getting drunk, and buying really expensive presents. That is not the real meaning of Christmas. Christians celebrate Christmas to commemorate the birth of Jesus- we give gifts to the less fortunate, sing carols and go to church. We also spend time with loved ones and indulge in the Christmas feast. For decades now, the authenticity and spirit of Christmas has become meaningless- non Christians celebrate this day, and overindulge in gifts (buying & receiving), succumb to gluttony and take part in foolish behaviour (gambling, sexual intercourse, drinking too much). 

It's sad that Christmas is 'no longer Christmas'. It is just another novelty holiday.
