What happen to the Christmas that I knew long ago? where love was abundant and happiness would grow, where people were kind to one another for no reason at all, Christmas used to mean so much than just shopping at the mall, people used to care for families in need. giving what they could, a valuable lessen to heed, a time when strangers were treated like a friend, the spirit of Christmas should have a begining with no end, families should be together without the bickering and the fights, that's not what Christmas is, it's time to set things right, presents shouldn't matter on a bright Christmas day, if people got nothing, they should be happy anyway, Christmas is so magical why can't any one see? the spirit of Christmas lies with those who truly believe.

I agree....mostly. You don't have to "truly believe" to have the christmas spirit.

The problem is that christmas has become so commercialized. After seeing all of the corporate propaganda for so long, people begin to see christmas the way that corporations want them to see it. It's the most wonderful time to consume. It's sad really. I remember being a kid and not being able to wait for christmas to get here, now as an adult I cannot wait for it to be over. Not because I hate christmas, I don't, it's because it just feels to me like people have forgotten what it's all about.

For Unto you Is Born this Day , In the city of David A saviour, which is Christ The Lord.

Luke-2 christmas is to celebrate Jesus CHRIST'S bIRTHDAY, it's not about us-we are them. it's all about him. So dont forget the true Reason -for the season !!!!!!!!
