Christmas is Not About Shopping

Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year! There are so many wonderful things to do this time of year. I love the fact that I can find the best deals on electronics at Christmas. I love reading about the Top 10 Christmas Gifts. I love reading about custom Christmas decorations. Everything about Christmas is great, and I always look forward to the Black Friday deals every year.

I often wonder how many people understand the real meaning of Christmas. I think some people just think Christmas is about looking at Christmas house lights or looking for the latest LED Christmas decorations. I know that battery operated Christmas lighting is popular this year, but I have better things to do with my time than to look at Vintage Christmas lights all December.

Christmas is about the birth of Jesus. That is what the holidays are really about. They are about sharing your love with people who are less fortunate. It is about singing Christmas carols at the local nursing home or spending time with your family. It is about getting in touch with our creator and sharing our faith with others.

Christmas is not about Cyber Monday specials or the latest gadgets on everyone’s mind. It sure isn’t about standing outside Wal-Mart at 2 am in the morning so you can get the best deal on the latest television. I have always felt that people that do that every year are really only about themselves during Christmas. I have found better deals on most products online anyways, so I don’t need to spend a lot of time standing in line at 3 am just I can be in a store with 500 other people trying to get the same thing. Christmas is about the birth of Jesus, spending time with your loved ones, and giving to others.
