It’s Christmas Time
Just a few more hours until Christmas. Everyone’s already preparing for Noche Buena which they will spend with their friends and family. Truly, Christmas is the best time to be with your loved ones and be happy. But as the years pass by, it seems like we have forgotten what Christmas is about.
As a tradition in the Philippines, when the -ber months finally kick in everyone starts putting up beautiful Christmas decorations in their homes, buildings and even on the streets. Some would even start going shopping to buy gifts to avoid the holiday rush and heavy traffic. Then, on the 24th of December, everyone will gather with their friends and family to wait for the 25th and start eating the food they have prepared for hours.
But this isn’t what Christmas is. It’s not about the gifts nor food. It’s about spending time with the people you love the most, enjoying their company and just living. But more importantly, Christmas is about remembering the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ. Without Him there wouldn’t even be Christmas, and we wouldn’t be alive. Okay. The latter may not be true but the former is. We should remember and give thanks for the things He has done and will do for us. The life, blessings and happines He has given us. Christmas is about JESUS CHRIST. Let us celebrate this holiday by spreading the word that Jesus is born and be amazed in His glory.
Have a very Merry Christmas everyone!
