What is the real meaning of christmas?

Many individuals in the U.S enjoy Christmas time on Dec 25. The day is a celebration of Christ’s coming into this world. It is often combined with customs from pre-Christian winter weather festivities. This was the basic information that I read from murrychristmas.com/uncategorized/commercialization-of-christmas-in-the-u-s/ however, I was really touched when the article said something about the commercialization of Christmas. People should not think that Christmas is all about presents. They should remember the true meaning of Christmas.

For us it is about family I am Jewish and many think we don't believe in Christ not true we know when he was born we just see him as another prophet not our savior. Many have lost the true meaning I was born to a Jewish mom and Catholic dad I still enjoy midnight mass and plan to go as I did with my dad. I also make sure my son goes with me on my many volunteer events during the holidays.

And this year has extra special meaning since it is my wifes first with us!

I teach my children it is not about gifts, but about spending time with your family.

 I celebrate Yule and it is about celebrating the birth of the Lord to the Lady.

That is because some people do not believe in God, so for them it is about presents. And that is okay family time is very important.

I believe in God so for me it is about his birth.

For me christmas is about being with family and friends, and having a good time, enjoying good food and company. Its never been about gifts for me, because i dont normally get them. I was a single mom so everything was always about seeing my daughters face light up on christmas when she sees what santa left under the tree. This year will be the best christmas as far as i am concerned because my husband and i bought a house this year, and him and our children will be together, last year he was in Afangistan so it was hard.So its really our first christmas as a family, i just cant wait! I also love this time of year because people seem to be nicer to one another , I love hearing stories of random strangers doing kind things for people in need during the holidays, we also donate a basket full of all the trimmings for someone at the church to recieve.

In my little family we were not very celebratory of Christmas in our home. It's not the birth date of Christ, and we frown on commercialism. For Grandmothers sake, we did allow her to do it up for the kids. It was something she was so into.
