True Meaning of Christmas

I realize this is a bit belated - but I still thought is was worth posting..

What is the true meaning of Christmas?

No. It’s not Santa.

No. It’s not even gift giving, happiness, family, cookies, snow, or singing Christmas carols.
Those are wonderful things.

But they are not what this season is really all about.

Some people say, Jesus. Jesus’ birth is the true meaning of Christmas.
So close, but still not quite.

Christians look at the baby in the manger and think “Aww, how cute.”
They think: this is what it’s all about.

But the true meaning of Christmas is not the baby.
The true meaning of Christmas is why the baby is in that manger in the first place.

The true meaning of Christmas is that God loves you.
The true meaning of Christmas is that God looked down on you from heaven and saw something worth loving.

God loves you. God will always love you.
Never forget that.

Peace and love in this new year my friends
