Have we forgotten the true meaning of Christmas???

santa waving

Just take time as you buy that extra present you cannot really afford,, What is the true meaning of Christmas,,,,,,,,

It isn't about the boxes and bows. Even the Grinch found that out.

Every Who down in Whoville, the tall and the small,
Was singing! Without any presents at all!
He HADN’T stopped Christmas from coming! IT CAME!

Somehow or other, it came just the same!
And the Grinch, with his grinch-feet ice-cold in the snow,
Stood puzzling and puzzling: “How could it be so?”
“It came with out ribbons! It came without tags!”
“It came without packages, boxes or bags!”

And he puzzled three hours, till his puzzler was sore.
Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn’t before!
“Maybe Christmas,” he thought, “doesn’t come from a store.”
“Maybe Christmas…perhaps…means a little bit more!”
And what happened then? Well…in Whoville they say,
That the Grinch’s small heart Grew three sizes that day!

Thank you for correcting my bad Maltese,, It is not a language I speak,, But the sentiment in my wishes is the same cold snowman2 dancingsanta
No your Maltese is not bad for sure you are better than me cause I don't know a word in French.
Kuntenti in Maltese means happy I think you translated it from Happy Christmas but we say Il- Milied it Tajjeb.Tajjeb means good.professor
idea confused Just a thought,, Was Jesus born on December 25? There is no evidence for this date dunno
No I dont think he was born on that day but the 25th December is a symbolic day.They chose that day to celebrate his birth.I don't think anyone knows the exact day he was born.
happy xmas livin ... glad to see it for once written in maltese

It's 12.48am now here in Indonesia - Christmas Day and I'm still waiting for Santa to arrive here. Hasn't gotten here yet, maybe still drinking himself out at Partic's place in Australia...laugh laugh
Merry Christmas to you to livin. God bless you teddybear hug
And a Happy Birthday Jesus day to you too, Amen.

@ L T D: There is no concrete evidence when Jesus was born but theologists have estimated it to be in September/October and that was figured out when HE was crucified at age 33 years and 3 months.

@ Kapjen: that's why I just about always say "have a Happy Birthday Jesus day" to all those who are Christian. And to all others I say happy holidays because I love you if you aren't Christian!

Hi Livin_the_dream!

25th of December was chosen as the Birthday of Jesus because it's connected with the "birth" of the sun. Meaning that around this date the day starts growing. Science, folklore and religion are connected. Christianity was wise enough to use many of the pagan/folklore days/rituals/beliefs and to transform them in a new faith.

Merry Christmas!
Merci beaucoup livin, je vous les souhaite aussiwinebouquet

The date of Christ's actual birth is unknown. It is not recorded.

Ultimately, December 25 was chosen, By the Roman church

Only the Armenian church held to the original celebration of Christ's birth with Epiphany on January 6.

I wish you peace & happiness
