Put Christ back into your Christmas

We forget the meaning every year. All of the hype of the season blinds us to what Christmas really is. Through hunting down the perfect present, and the decorating of our houses to get recognized as having the most holiday cheer, and finally all the bills for the carefully prepared food. All this hustle and bustle to have a seemingly “perfect Christmas” is making us forget the reason for the season.
Christ is the true provider of the Christmas spirit. It was on that starry night in Bethlehem that this holiday was born. An ideal Christmas is centered on Christ. It is important that we remember him for the giver that he was. Not only to remember, but to act on this memory. Giving is an essential part to a Merry Christmas. That is what the true meaning of Christmas is. Slow down and think of our Lord Jesus Christ.
