What's the true meaning of christmas?

Report as

It was originally a Pagan holiday to celebrate the feast of the Son of Isis, Goddess of Nature. The people would eat large amounts and have large parties, and just have fun.

Anyway, my definition of the true meaning of Christmas is to have fun with family, no matter what the background is.

Well... I guess I say stuff like "lol".... That count? I usually don't count it.... But other than that, nada. I guess years of English teachers molding it into my head that we should never text like that got to me lol.

I used to use slang. But then I turned 9. Now I look back and say, "Oh, God..... Why?..." Funny thing is, I actually HAVE to write like that sometimes. I am dyslexic and can't spell sometimes, which causes me to use dat slang.

The birth of Christ, but nobody really knows when He was born, so they moved it to Dec. 25th to coincide with the winter solstice.

Aren't there speculations that he was conceived around December? And he was born in September or something?

if you study the bible, you'll know that Christ was born September 11th on a Jewish holiday of some sort.
Report as
Nowhere in the Bible does it say Jesus was born on Sept. 11th.

you don't study the annual holidays, nor do you keep them so you wouldn't know.. you would know these things if you studied the Torah

I read the Torah.. the first five chapters in the bible

Skunk says: "Christmas is a pagansized holiday, true followers of Christ won't celebrate that abomination."

Actually it was the other way around, Dec.25th was the pagan holiday first, then that date was coopted by Christians.

no matter what religion you are you are celebrating Jesus's birth, even if you don't know you are. So Atheist usually won't celebrate Christmas.

I have several friends who are Atheist and they still celebrate Christmas.
Report as
Atheists celebrate it. They just don't celebrate the birth of Christ. They celebrate it more like.... Love and family.

ACtually you are celebrating the Winter solstice. Christians stole the holiday from the pagans.

Even if Jesus had existed, he would have been born in mid to late September, according to SCripture. The Church chose the solstice to try and supplant pagan beliefs.

(Sorry this is slightly off-topic but somewhat going with the above comment) What if God does exist, and He started Evolution, and Adam and Eve were the first humans from the evolution chain, and Jesus actually did exist?
Report as
There is no evidence that any of those are true, so it is moot.

A majority of Christians in the world believe a form of that, but again there is no evidence. I don't deal in "what if", I deal in "what is supported by evidence".

Christmas is not about the Savior's infancy; it is about His deity. The humble birth of Jesus Christ was never intended to conceal the reality that God was being born into the world.

But the modern world's version of Christmas does just that. And consequently for the greater part of humanity, Christmas has no legitimate meaning at all.

I don't suppose anyone can ever fathom what it means for God to be born in a manger. How does one explain the Almighty stooping to become a tiny infant Our minds cannot begin to understand what was involved in God's becoming man. continue in comment...

Nor can anyone explain how God could become a baby. Yet He did. Without forsaking His divine nature or diminishing His deity, He was born into our world as a tiny infant.

He was fully human, with all the needs and emotions that are common to us all. Yet He was also fully God--all wise and all powerful.

For nearly 2,000 years, debate has been raging about who Jesus really is. Cults and skeptics have offered various explanations. They'll say He is one of many gods, a created being, a high angel, a good teacher, a prophet, and so on. The common thread of all such theories is that they make Jesus less than God. But the biblical evidence is overwhelming that this child in the manger was the incarnation of God.

One passage in particular, written by the apostle Paul, captures the essence of Jesus' divine nature and underscores the truths that make Christmas truly wonderful.

Colossians 1:15-20 says,

He is the image of the invisible God, the first born of all creation. For. . . all things have been created by Him and for Him. And He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together. He is also head of the body, the church; and He is the beginning, the first born from the dead; so that He Himself might come to have first place in everything. For it was the Father's good pleasure for all the fullness to dwell in Him, and through Him to reconcile all things to Himself, having made peace through the blood of His cross.

The song White Wine In The Sun by Tim Minchin is for me a great description of Christmas. It's a day to appreciate your family a and loved ones, no matter what your religious beliefs are. I know that many people feel if you don't go to church you shouldn't be "allowed" to celebrate Christmas. But, since it is a national holiday and also omnipresent everywhere you go from Oct to Jan, I feel it can be enjoyed by everyone as a time of family renewal. For better or worse, Santa is as well (or maybe more) known than Jesus. So for me the meaning of Christmas is giving to my family my love and appreciation.

Christmas was originally a pagan celebration of the winter Solstice, and the given birthdate of several pagan savior figures such as Mithras. The Christian church grafted their own savior myth onto the existing pagan ones to get converts in the fourth century.

In Christianity, Christmas represents the birth of Jesus Christ. In Catholicism, Jesus Christ is the Savior of the world. So for the Catholics, Christmas is the birth of the Savior.

The true meaning is the birth of our savior Jesus who suffered died and rose again to save us for our sins if we want to believe it.
