Christmas

 

I struggle with the Christmas season and most of the time I feel like it could be done away with and that would be fine with me.  My biggest complaint of Christmas is the commercialization of it, it makes me nauseated.  And I don’t know how to marry the idea of celebrating the miracle of God taking on flesh and coming to dwell among us AND the busyness and going into debt for the sake of a holiday.  Each year I struggle with my feelings towards this time of year.

But this morning I read this article “Should Christians celebrate Christmas?” and it has has given me food for thought to chew on for a while.  You can read it here - http://yoursacredcalling.com/blog/2011/11/should-christians-celebrate-christmas/

This paragraph sums up how I feel...
"We are simply setting aside an occasion of remembrance—a time when we recall the miracle of the incarnation and teach it to our children. The day itself is not special, but the day we’re remembering is glorious—the day when God became flesh and dwelt among us!"

I also liked the part so that when our children ask we have an answer for them....so important...

Thank you for sharing that!
