The holiday season is here again. The rush to the stores to get presents, decorating the house, putting up the Christmas tree, baking goodies for Christmas, and kids finishing up their last weeks of school before break. This time is a wonderful and sometimes it can be stressful.
What many non-Christian people think about Christmas
A jolly Santa 'Claus, funny looking elves, and flying-reindeer is what many non-Christian people think about Christmas. It is a time where families get together and give each other presents. Fun fact: Santa 'Claus character was based from a real Christian Bishop named St. Nicolas. Bishop Nicolas was a kind and generous person, and he gave gifts to the needy, which sprouted gift-giving for later generations.
Christmas: Christ's Birth
Christmas to Christians is more than just giving presents and having a wonderful time with family and friends. This day honors Christ's birth to this messed-up world. Although we do not know exactly what day Christ was born, we can celebrate His birth on this day. That's what we should remember about this holiday. Also, we don't need celebrate Christ's birth only on this day, but we can be thankful for His coming to our world all the time.
A Bible verse reminder
"For unto us a Child is born,
Unto us a Son is given;
And the government will be upon His shoulder.
And His name will be called
Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace."
