The Meaning of Christmas is Entirely UP TO YOU!
   CHRISTMAS is such a significant word in History. It is a traditional religious holiday, although many who celebrate Christmas are non-Christians. One thing is for certain, the fact that this season for whatever reason this time of the year just inspires people to be nice and forgiving. There is just an amount of joy and cheer when we walk on Christmas eve.     Many have defined Christmas as the birth of Christ and a fulfillment of a promise. Some think that the holiday …

Somewhere Between The Angry Drivers, Crowded Stores, Screaming Children, And Desperate Parents...
...There is a day set aside by Christians to celebrate the birth of their Savior, Jesus Christ.  While the great majority of scholars agree that it is highly unlikely that Jesus was actually born on December 25, I think that Christmas is one of those days that falls under the It's the thought that counts banner.  Jesus might not have been born on this day, but what's the problem with celebrating His birthday on this date anyway?      I'm not writing this …

All I want for Christmas... A miracle!
William (Woopak) wrote that the meaning of Christmas is entirely up to you.   What does Christmas mean to anyone or everyone for that matter? To a Christian, the entire world. To a Chinese and non-believer, just another festive day related to some other 'aliens' in the world. To me? Well, Christmases come and go. Almost 2 decades ago, I had myself baptised on this very day; I was given a new leash of life.      Today, all I want for Christmas is not world peace …

Even though Christmas is over as of writing this, I feel like talking about it now.      Despite abandoning my Christian faith in 2001 (I'm an agnostic with really strong leanings toward atheism), I still practice Christmas because I think it's a wonderful time to spend with friends and family, and that I see it more as a cultural tradition in the Western world than an exclusively-Christian holiday.  I guess it helps that since 2006, I've been spending …

Whatever happened to simple Biblical Christianity?
Alright, I'll warn you. I might sound like an odd variety of Scrooge in this review of Christmas. Please don't judge me too harshly. But here it goes...      First, as you might already know and as @Scotman and @woopak_the_thrill have pointed out, Christmas was never the time of Christ's birth. Growing up around Christians unfortunately I feel like I was cheated into believing that Christmas is really a celebration of the birth of the Messiah. I was well into my 20s when I realized …

True Meaning of Christmas...Holidays in the D!
Something happened to me a few weeks ago that really turned on the lightbulb to make a difference this holiday season. Let me share a story with you…I was listening to the radio and was touched and empowered to take action. This lady on the radio won a contest and received the new DJ Hero game (similar to Guitar Hero). When the radio personality asked her what she was going to do with it, she said she was going to give it to her kids and they were going to be so excited because she …

I love Christmas season for all-day meditations and time with family...and that there are billions of people thinking about peacefulness.

   I don't like the christmas and I am not the new Grweench. But nobody knows the actual date of birth of Jesus. Protestant sects believe that christmas was created by Coca Cola Company and all this celebration is meaningless advertising. They believe that Christmas tree has a satanic meaning. When Jesus was born all children his age were decapitated and their heads were hung on trees. This action reminds them the Christmas tree to the prostetan sects. Usually the christmas day I'm with …

Christmas is a time for life. I was baptised on that very day so I'd say it's "Happy Birthday!" for me!
