The Gift of Receiving Love and Affection on Christmas

By:   |   Jul 08, 2018   |   Views: 31   |   Comments: 0

Christmas is forever, not for just one day,

for loving, sharing, giving, are not to put away

like bells and lights and tinsel, in some box upon a shelf.

The good you do for others is good you do yourself.

~Norman Wesley Brooks - "Let Every Day Be Christmas"

Christmas today is a mass-market frenzy of materialism. From early in the course of November until December 25 shelves are filled with reminders that Christmas is to purchase and receive cool things cheaper than you earn thousands of dollars in debt just a short streak of luck.

It's easy to get caught up in the joy of materialism. Yet what's lost amidst the endless amounts of shopping is what makes Christmas such a special time of year - the ability to spend time with friends and family.

What Christmas Really Means

How many of the gifts that you received as a child do you remember? How many of them do you still use today? If receiving gifts was what made Christmas so important, than the gifts themselves would still play a prominent role in your life. Now most of those gifts are gone - either in a closet or sold at a garage sale. And yet, despite the loss of presents, Christmas still feels so important. So magical. Something about Christmas makes it one of the happiest times of the year, even though the gifts we receive end up being lost or forgotten soon after.
