What Is Christmas

Christmas Eve Mountainside Church Services

A friend of mine recently brought up the question of “What is Christmas to your family? What are you celebrating?” I wasn’t sure how to answer and it made me think that Christmas has become this time of family and friends, giving and receiving, being thankful and warm fuzzy fireplace stuff but my children don’t know the story of Jesus’s birth. So I think I might take them to a Christmas Eve service this year so they can find out what Christmas is really about. If there’s no meaning, what is the point?

If there was a temple, mosque or a synagogue, I’d take them there, as well, at other times of the year. I guess we just need to travel a bit more to learn and experience all the different religions and stories.
