The Spirit of Christmas

What is the true spirit of Christmas?

The true spirit of Christmas is not about receiving gifts it’s about giving and sharing your love, service and blessings to people around you. Every Christmas, each of us expect gifts from our parents, friends and other loved ones and always get excited when we see gifts under our Christmas Tree. But haven’t you thought about those people around you who are very much in need? No matter what happens, Christmas will always be here but not all people celebrate Christmas like we do. Some families and individuals doesn’t celebrate Christmas with roasted chicken, ham, spaghetti and fruits on their table because they can’t afford to buy them. But we can help them to celebrate Christmas in their homes and make them happy by giving gifts, singing Christmas carols, cheering them up and sharing some of our foods to them.

We must always remember that we just don’t celebrate Christmas because it’s a holiday and it’s a time were we get to eat a lot of food and receive gifts but it’s a time that we remember and cherish Jesus Christ’s birth whom we dearly love for He’s our savior!

Let us all feel the spirit of Christmas! The cold breeze, the smile of people we meet each day, the love and warmth we feel with our family and the love & kindness of God will always bring happiness to us! May we all have a very happy Christmas!!
