December is officially the first month of Winder and let’s face it usually when we think of December our mind instantly relates it with Christmas. We would probably think of family gatherings, Christmas trees and lights, presents, and even Santa. But none of them truly is about the Christmas spirit. Is it?
Everything I mentioned is just some Christmas traditions and customs. Of course, lots of them are fan to follow and put us in a festive mood. There is nothing wrong with that. But to me Christmas is not all about lights, spending money, and eating food like there is no tomorrow.
I have never been much of a religious person but truth is that Christmas is all about religion. After all, we celebrate the birth of the son of God, Christ. Even people of other religions celebrate Christmas. I guess it must be due to the whole party atmosphere and the huge profit industry created around them.
But what does this birth of Christ represent? Christ was a gift of love from God that was supposed to come into this world in order to save humans.
Thinking of it this way the story of humanity until that point must have been a big disappointment. To simplify it even more I would just call it a sad story where the birth of Christ came to bring a sense of hope. Hope that no matter what, things might have a happy ending.
My Christmas Spirit Translation
The way I translate the true spirit of Christmas is that it is all about love and hope.
These last couple of years we all lived were definitely a sad story. Something which we all hope that it will soon come to an end.
These Christmas I would suggest you to spend them with your loved ones, whoever they are, and never forget that no matter what there is always something to hope for!
I want to thank you all for this last amazing year that blogging came into my life! I love you all and I hope to see you all again in 2022!
Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year!
