Christmas Time

Hey everyone! It’s been a while. You know, life and all. I’m just going to give you a brief message to commemorate this special day.

Christmas is a special time for Christians, obviously. What does it celebrate? Nowadays it is more of a secular holiday, with stores raking in huge profits and everyone exchanging gifts. For Christians, it is the day when our Lord and Savior was born. I am a Catholic, although I can say that I like indulging in gifts and fancy dinners, haha. Can non-Christians celebrate Christmas? Technically, no, since that would involve remembering Christ, but holidays like these usually invoke a sense of well being and kindness for our fellow men, so in that sense they can participate in the celebration. It’s good to not forget this aspect of holidays, to all be united and to share love with our family and friends. As for Christians, we also should remember the birth of our Lord and to celebrate that as well. I love holidays like Christmas because it puts all these things in perspective. We all have our problems, but most of us should be grateful for what we have, and so it’s important to not lose sight of this.

I know it’s a bit late, but I wish everyone a Merry Christmas with blessings from God. I hope everyone can enjoy this holiday season!!!

And don’t worry, I’ve been having a busy and rough semester, but I will try my hardest to keep this alive. Thanks for your support!
