And So It Is Christmas

Christmas Tree
And so this is how I value Christmas in acrostic:

Christmas is for CHILDREN. It's the little children who really love Christmas. They're all excited when Christmas is just around the corner. They love also to sing Christmas carols. And they go out house to house at night to sing them.

Christmas is HOME. Christmastime is one of the nicest times of the year to be with your beloved family when you're away from them for even a year. There's a popular song that says, "I'll be home for Christmas." Beside there's no place like home and Christmas seasons suits the time to be with your family.

Christmas is “REST”. The main eternal theme for Christmas is "peace on earth and goodwill to men." When it is Christmas day, everybody maintains peace among themselves. Even the bad make a truce with the good. Even the messenger from on high, which appeared to the shepherds at night, signified a message to them to have their rest and pay homage to the Son of God who was born in a manger.

Christmas is INTELLIGENCE. The glory of God is intelligence. Those who value Christmas in its spiritual aspect have the spiritual intelligence. They're well-guided by the Holy Spirit. Their conscience or the spirit of Christ is leading them to the strait and narrow path. They're forgiving, humble, meek and slow-to-anger.

Christmas is SANTA. Santa Claus plays the role of gift-giver. He gives gifts to those kids who are good, obedient to their parents, friendly, loving and caring. Christmas is more than giving at all. It makes everyone who is approved before the eyes of God happy. Christmas is not only Santa, but also it is SERVICE. Christmas is not every December for gift-giving but it is everyday.

Christmas is THANKSGIVING. Family gathers every Christmas time. Good kids received gifts. Those have grudge among themselves reconcile during Christmas season. And therefore, Christmas is a time to be thankful for all those happy moments and to be grateful for everything the Lord has given.

Christmas is a MASS. It could be well-appreciated and well-understood if everyone gathers together in a simple program, ceremonies or rites and listens to a spiritual leader for homily, speeches, or for an uplifting messages about Heavenly Father's unfeigned love.

Christmas is ADVENT. It is the coming of a Messiah to fulfill the prophecy of the ancient prophets of all time to come to the world and to do the work of His Father as He is commanded to do.

And Christmas is the SAVIOR. Everyone falls and comes short to the glory of God. Everyone suffers the spiritual death. In order to overcome this spiritual bondage, there should be someone who is sinless to offer his life to save them. And He is JESUS, the Savior to redeem the world from sin. And Christmas is a fulfillment of unfeigned love of our Heavenly Father as what the Bible says:"For God so loved the world that He gave His Only Begotten Son that whosoever believeth in Him shall not perish but have an everlasting life."

And so that is CHRISTMAS! The war is over. Merry Christmas!
