Why do we celebrate Christmas?

We celebrate Christmas each year, but do we know why we do so? Is it because it's always been so? Is it because we'd feel bad without celebrating the holiday? Is it because December is the right time to do so? Well... Love is the true meaning of Christmas just as John (3:16-17) once said, "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him."


I think, all Christians should be aware of this simple truth that God through sending His son to us showed us His incredible act of love, and this is why we should cherish this special gift of God's becoming a human being... Jesus Christ. Some might wonder why did He send His son? The answer is simple... out of pure love because He knew we needed a Savior. That's why we should celebrate, and praise God for what He did for us, at the same time sharing love with others, especially the poor and those less fortunate.

So, let's celebrate and be merry for "God demonstrated His own love for us in this: while we were still sinners, Christ died for us" (Romans 5:8).

My question to you:
How do you usually celebrate Christmas?

  1. Hmm, I have to really think of what I have just read... Something obvious, but at the same time something new...

    1. Please add something to this... You obviously have something more to say why this is such a special time for us, don't you?
