The tree is decorated
The gifts are wrapped
The children eagerly await Santa Claus
The parents share a tender embrace under the mistletoe
It’s the happiest time of the year.
But let’s not forget what the true meaning of Christmas is all about. The birth of our Lord Jesus Christ, born to spread the word of his Father the Lord, to bring us closer to the Lord by instilling in us a spiritually unlike that we have known, to redeem us of our sins.
So let us take a moment today to praise him and remember it was his birth that truly makes this day a special day.
