I love the Christmas season and for me it is really the season to be jolly. We all celebrate birthdays but this season we celebrate the birthday of our Savior Jesus Christ so then it is proper for us to do it with great pleasure and happiness in our souls. The birth of any child is great joy for the parents and the birth of the one who sacrificed himself for our sins is a blessing for Christians.
We are all different and we all have different family values and what I like most is that we are trying to translate these values into family traditions. When I was a kid we always celebrate the Christmas at my grandparents and I remember the preparations that we were doing before Christmas. While we were helping to prepare the traditional Christmas treats our grandparents were singing carols about Jesus Crist. On Christmas Eve ,after we get dressed in a traditional costume, we were going to sing carols to our relatives, friends or our neighbor’s houses. Now these recollections appear as magical moments that I’d like to create ,and I do, for my daughter.
I know that today Christmas is no longer what was once. I know that today during Christmas we speak most of Santa Claus than Jesus Crist. I know that today children are more captivated by Santa than Jesus. But it’s up to us to educate our children about both and most of it to separate one of another. We read stories to our children about Jesus kindness and love, and we benefit Santa to make our children to share Jesus love for human kind.
More and more people are saying that Santa Claus was created to boost Christmas sales. But who doesn’t like to get a present? Deep inside we are children so don’t deny something that is not true, just enjoyed. Santa Claus is for all the children in the world no matter of religion or race. All the religions in the world are embracing the kindness, the love and the sharing that Santa Claus is spreading.
I want to finish this post with greetings for all my friends and all my enemies in the world. Greetings for all who believe or have disbelief in Christmas or in Santa Claus
MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!!
