Christmas 2011

Ahh pulling out the box of Christmas lights from the basement. Bringing out the memories of all those handmade and bought ornaments. Looking at the tangled mess of  Christmas lights. Fetching for my special stocking, hoping it gets filled to the top. Listening to the Christmas tunes. Dusting the nativity scene. I'm getting into the Christmas season... NOT. That is not me.

The scene above is a very common one. My family does not give presents, hang lights, or buy a tree for Christmas. We do not see the point of it. Christmas is the time where we supposedly celebrate Jesus birthday. In Luke 2 I have never read of Mary adding a first christmas ornament with a picture of baby Jesus on the tree behind her. Jesus is truly the reason for the season in my home. We do not think it is necessary to give gifts on christmas. I am not saying that we never give or receive gifts on Christmas. If we happen to see the thing that someone wanted, we could buy it and give it to them whenever we choose, not only just holidays. That is the true meaning of a gift, receiving something you do not deserve.

I do not judge the people who deck their houses with lights and trees. I think the ornament filled Christmas trees look beautiful, but I do not encourage you to do so. The Lord has a specific relationship with each of His children he can minister you and lead you to what His will is.

I found this video very informative. I hope to share more christmas related videos that edify you.


  1. Many people around the world celebrate Christmas by giving gifts, vacationing and even helping out in soup kitchens and such. However, they don't acknowledge Jesus as their Lord and Savior. They don't realize that we are to celebrate Him who gave us life by giving up His.

    Let's not be one of them who take out Christ from Christmas!
