“Isn’t There Anyone Who Knows What Christmas Is All About?”

Well, it’s that time of year again! The most wonderful time of the year, many people say. Christmas is just a few days away from now.

I’ll keep this post short, as it’s getting to be the last fifteen minutes of Sunday, when I publish my new post every week.

Christmas has been rather harshly commercialized in today’s culture. As soon as Halloween is over, Christmas music is playing on the radio. Stores start breaking out the Christmas stuff as early as October. Buying things and getting things is often seen to be the focus of the whole thing, which understandably stresses many people out. It can get really crazy.

Now, obviously, there is absolutely nothing wrong with giving and receiving gifts on Christmas. I love it, and I still get butterflies in my stomach from the sheer excitement of waking up on Christmas morning. But I just wanted to share this one thought: as we’re all gathering together, opening presents, giving presents, feasting, and all that jolly good stuff, let’s remember where it all comes from and why we commemorate the holiday in the first place.

Linus said it better than I probably could, so I’ll let him take it from here.

Have a Merry Christmas, everyone!
