True meaning of Christmas

A song that I like, played during Christmas

'And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. But the angel said to them, " Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord."
Luke 2:8-11

Christmas is Jesus's birthday, a time where families gather to celebrate the beginning of a next year. The concept of joyous, openings of presents. I sometimes wonder: is Christmas really all about opening of presents? Or is Christmas even the time of presents?

How did people even get this misconception that Christmas is all about presents, Santa, Rudolph, and Christmas tree? When did this concept even started? Actually, Christmas is all about JESUS!! The time when our king was born. In reality, we, as Christians, celebrate Christmas to remember God's love for us, why He sent His son: for our salvation!

This year's Christmas, let's celebrate it, bearing the true meaning of this joyous occassion in our hearts, because of Christmas, our salvation is here. Do not forget that the lost are yet to be saved. C'mon people let's celebrate Christmas with the spirit of truth and let someone know about the true meaning of Christmas and let them be saved this Christmas!! Be abundantly blessed! :D
