I think back to all the commercialism and all the pressures of buying gifts, decorating houses and sending cards. I am not a big fan of it. I tend to think that as we continue all this, we are losing touch with the true meaning of Christmas.
I like to look back at Linus’ message of the true meaning of Christmas, taken from the Gospel of Luke. It’s refreshing to still keep this relevant in the society that seems to push everything but Jesus as the reason why we are celebrating this time of year.
I wish you all a very Merry Christmas. May the message of Christ’s arrival be the centerpiece of the reason of this season!
