Christ in Christmas

You can feel it in the air. Christmas is just around the bend. This is my most favorite holidays of all holidays. I just love the feeling of peace, love, sharing and goodwill happening at this season. I enjoy seeing kids jump with glee when they see what's inside their wrapped gifts. I get excited too when I see my own daughter pace in anticipation few hours before midnight of 24 December, waiting to open her gifts and making a beehive around the Christmas tree. It's that season again.

Malls are decorated with festive ornaments to remind consumers of gift-buying. Minced pies are being baked again for bulk orders. Christmas Yule Logs will soon fill the shelves of bakeries and goody shops. It's that season again.

The weather is getting chilly. You throw in warm blankets and put in socks and mitts. You sit by the fireplace drinking hot cocoa and chat with family and friends over some fine wine and cheese. It's that season again.

Christmas is not just gift-giving, the camaraderie in the air, the joyous festivities we will all share with family and friends. It is the time for Christ as he is the reason for the season. Let's all not forget to remember to put back the CHRIST in Christmas.


  1. Hi! Cute Christmas tree! Thanks for the comment on my blog. I am doing well ... have been keeping busy making new things for craft shows. Wishing you and your family many Christmas blessings!

  2. Yes, Christmas is not only gift-giving. Its true meaning is the celebration of the birth of our Savior , Jesus Christ---to put Christ into our lives so God can be glorified.
