Christmas is an annual holiday that makes my little wishes come true. A pair of new shoes, new dress and gifts from my Godparents. That’s how I defined Christmas years and years ago until… I came to Bahrain. That’s when I realized what it really means. A special day to commemorate the birth of Jesus. Here in Bahrain, Christmas is nothing. It’s just an ordinary working day for almost everyone, unless your boss is considerate, he’ll give you at least a half day to celebrate, if there are celebrations happening. But in my case, there’s nothing to celebrate literally. Everyone is at work, that includes my husband and myself. We attend the midnight (Christmas Eve) mass and that’s it, go to sleep and get back to work the next day, on Christmas day. My first Christmas away from home happened in 1999. I came here in October and had the most loneliest Christmas ever in my life – without my family. That made me realized their importance. On how meaningless celebrations would be without them. To cut the story short, for me Christmas is all about Jesus and family. If you have friends to celebrate this special day with you, that’s a bonus! –When Silence Speaks~o0o~
A little while ago, I talked to my daughter about this year’s Christmas being different from the other Christmases we had. She asked me why. I explained to her that my husband and I are both undergoing financial difficulties since hubby has just been doing consultancy work since March and that means no extra money for the holiday expenses, not that we give expensive, extravagant gifts, we don’t. She said something like: “It’s okay, we don’t need expensive gifts, what is important is that we are together.” Thank you, Trixie, for making this easier. (Please click on her name to see what she has written in her blog about her thoughts on this.) We have always emphasized about the real meaning of this holy day. That this is about Jesus who came to save us from sins and give us eternal life. We always make it a point to go to church during the morning of Christmas day to give thanks to the Lord. Christmas is not just a holy day, not just a time of giving gifts but a time to thank the Lord for the blessings of life. –TeacherJulie~o0o~
Christmas is about the decision that God made to save mankind! The piercing truth is that Christmas is about so many decisions.First: It is the decision of God to send us Jesus Christ.Second: It is the decision of Mary to accept the will of God and cooperate in the plan of salvation.Third: Joseph decided to take Mary as his wife despite her condition. Joseph did not understand completely and yet because the angel told him so, he decided to say ‘yes’, too.Sometimes I feel that the yes of Mary overstated and the weight of Joseph’s yes was underestimated.If Joseph did not agree to the angel’s leading, the ‘yes’ of Mary would have resulted in a condemnable pregnancy that could have led to a dead mother and baby.Mary should have been stoned to death if Joseph decided to say no. Joseph’s decision was important.Fourth: It was also the decision of the wise Men to go another way and not collaborate with Herod who wanted to kill the Child Jesus.Fifth: It was the decision, too, of the shepherds to go in haste and tell the others what they have seen.So, for me Christmas is a story of decisions! – Dom
It’s funny that I got tagged with this coz just this morning, hubby asked my eldest (5yrs old) “Jessica, what is Christmas” and she replied without hesitation “It’s when you get presents!” LoL! So, that’s what we’ve been teaching our daughter for the past 5yrs! I couldn’t blame her. Well, I started explaining to her that Christmas is when Jesus Christ was born. Well, then you would suspect she’ll ask more, of course she did! “Who’s Jesus?”…I replied “He is our Saviour! He saved us from all our sins. He sacrificed His life just to save us. You know like in movies where there’s a Hero, that’s who He is.” He just gave me a look that seems like saying “Okay, I’ll leave it up to you!” No more questions asked right after that.LoL! Growing up in a Catholic School gave me the advantage of understanding the birth of Jesus Christ and the rest of the story (unlike hubby who just knew Jesus by His name,hehehe!) That’s mainly what I believe Christmas is but well of course, it is by giving, sharing, celebrating and being kind to one another that we show our gratitude to Jesus Christ for saving all mankind!- Jenny at Hobbies and Such
Christmas- is about the celebrating the birth of a unique child “Jesus Christ” who was not created by a human father and mother. The one born that night in Bethlehem was unique in all of history. See and read through in the book of Matthew 1:18-25 and Luke 2:1-20. He had a heavenly pre-existence (John 1:1-3, 14). He is God, the Son—Creator of the universe (Philippians 2:5-11). This is why Christmas is called the incarnation, a word which means “in the flesh.” In the birth of Jesus, the eternal, all-powerful and all-knowing Creator came to earth in the flesh. And to his birth onwards people start celebrating Christmas Day on the 25th of December from generation after generation. People show’s love, forgiveness, respect and kindness to all less fornutate people. On other hand people tend to give and receive gifts these days. Christians are the one who love celebrating christmas the people who believe in Christ Jesus! – Haze at Cornucopia Chronicles
*Christmas to is a birthday of Jesus Christ. It’s also giving and sharing to one another as it’s a traditional expression around the world. Time to gathered with family and friends, caroling and joy as we welcome the other year. Christmas is a special day for all of us, especially to kids as they wait for Santa. As what they said “Give Love On Christmas Day”. It’s time of love and joy. A Little Bit Of Everything
