What Christmas is really about.

Ever since school, Christmas has been about carol singing, santa claus, jingle bells, gifts, the 'Christmas tree' & so many other things.

I wonder when and how Christ got eliminated out of 'Christmas'.

The heart of Christmas was, is and should always be Jesus. He is the one who gave the world the greatest gift that it could ever receive. The gift of Life. He showed to us a love that is incomparable.


Why do we snatch the all the praise and rejoicing that He is worthy of from Him and lay it before the 'Santa Claus' who by the way never existed or will never come to your home to deliver your gifts on a reindeer.

Can we get our focus off someone that's delusional and gives us temporary joy and instead focus on the one who is the true joy and life giver?

This Christmas, can we take our focus off of Santa, gifts, decorating the tree, stockings and jingle bells and instead focus on Jesus who is by the way the true reason for celebrating Christmas? Santa's an illusion after all but Jesus is not :)
