The True Meaning of Christmas

It is the Eve of Christmas and I just simply want to share with you an article that ran in the Tribune, our local newspaper here in Elkin, NC. Area school children were asked to write a short essay on, What Christmas Means to Them. I want to share what my Granddaughter, Emma wrote. I do believe she is a pretty smart young lady. Her heartfelt message says it all, enjoy.

What Christmas means to me is celebrating Jesus. To me, Christmas is not about the presents. It is about the true reason. The true reason why we celebrate Christmas is because of Jesus’ Birth. When Jesus was born He got three gifts. We get a lot of gifts that sometimes we take for granted.

On Christmas, we should be thankful for the gifts we have because some people don’t have anything. What we do have is Him. He is with us all the time.

Enjoy your family, the simple things in life, and rejoice in The Savior of the World’s birth.

Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night.
