A Christmas City with Meaning (My Christmas Blog)

Christmas is the most awaited season of the year. This is also one of the most happiest events to cap off the year. BUT before everything else, I hope we can all have a reality check to remember the true meaning of Christmas.

Most often than not, families and friends gather together to celebrate and the festive mood is heightened. It's not all about eating and eating and drinking and drinking. The gatherings purpose is to bring people closer to bond.

We have a yearly tradition at home. I just want to share a bit of our Christmas story. We have a collection of miniature houses that we setup every year. This is part of our Christmas bonding experience.

What I want to say here is that, those miniature figures not only are good to look at but, they also give us lessons.

Please be reminded that Santa Claus is a legendary figure. Legend is defined as "An unverified story handed down from earlier times, especially one popularly believed to be historical." Whereas the true meaning of Christmas has Jesus in the center of it.

Jesus Christ wasn't born on December 25. That date is just used to commemorate the birth of Christ.


This is also the season to "develop" the habit of giving and sharing.


As a new year approaches, let us leave our selfish ways behind.


Again, do bond with your family. Take the initiative! Go the extra mile to be with them. Please do not exchange your time with your family with your work or job.


Let us act like humans with logical thinking. Be quick to forgive and slow to anger. Peace on earth starts with you (us).


Lastly, we aren't barred to enjoy this season. This is just a small reminder that we celebrate Christmas because of Jesus (Christmas is soo commercialized these days.).

"Life is a gift from God BUT how we live it is our gift to Him."
