Hi friends, I was out in the shops for a quick grocery take up today, my oh my, the share human traffic was incredible. And I began to ask myself, what is all the fuss about christmas? Is it all about buying and sharing gifts, decorations, food or what exactly? Year in and out the tradition is getting more anxiety provoking. Every one feels excitement in the air. It is in the air and so highly infectious. We all know that christmas marks the birthday of our Lord Jesus Christ, but the celebrations seem to go on and on without much reference to the celebrant. Some of the party crew do not even know about the celebrant let alone think about His mission and purpose in this life. What a way to mark anothers birthday!
Yet many are still buying traditional decorations and other memoirs that are far below the real reason of christmas. The marketting industry never run short of what to bring to the stalls each year. Children demand very expensive gifts like PlayStation 2 and Nintendo wii which happened to have been sold out since November. I guess nearly every home who can afford this bought a unit this xmas. My son had realized that all the religous shops on christmas were totally empty! The bank had excessive queues and soon enough January will be here and the financial pinch hits hard.
Anyhow, the question remains, why all the fuss about xmas?
