In your own words..what do you think christmas is really about?

i want to see what you say about this

Report as

To me, Christmas is about remembering Jesus and his birth, mission, and teachings. It is expressed through love, for most of us that love is expressed to our family and friends. It is love given in tribute to the love Jesus demonstrated for us all.

The birth of Jesus. It's not about presents, snow, decorations, gingerbread, or even hot coco.

*sigh* I hate to be the one to break this to you but it has nothing to do with the birth of Jesus.

This is the TRUE meaning of Christmas. All the rest is superfluous. Feel free to jump on board,

Hey! You can't say that! I'm a Christian and I've always believed that Christmas was all about the birth of Jesus. Sorry, but you're not the one who can tell me what to believe.

Well, here in the South it seems to be about feeling smug about nothing in particular. It started out as a Catholic interpretation of a Pagan festival. Nowadays its just a great way for companies to make money. Sorry for being a scrooge you guys. Im always sick on Christmas.

This is an extremely difficult time of year for many people. I think, my personal opinion, people who are feeling lonely, or unloved, or desolate find this to be kind of like someone poking their bruise and laughing about it. I am so sad that they don't feel loved, or are lonely. When I was in Germany with my Air Force husband, we had people over for a holiday dinner. It was about embracing them as part of my family, I never had a better Christmas and it had nothing to do with presents, it was about loving others and expressing that love in a way that meant something to them. I wonder if you served in a soup kitchen, would it help you feel better?

It's about Jesus' birth. The presents and Santa, etc are all just random things that people made up to cover up what Christmas really is.

December 25 was chosen as the day to celebrate Christ's birth as a symbol of how he brought light into the world at the darkest time of the year. It's a time of joy that our redeemer has come as God's gift to us. We in turn offer gifts to our loved ones in this same spirit of giving.
