Christmas is a term of Latin origin that means birth, and gives name to the feast that takes place on the occasion of the arrival of Jesus Christ to our world. Christmas is therefore the celebration of the birth of Jesus, which took place in Bethlehem, a town in Palestine, about two thousand and sixteen years ago.
Christmas is a well-known and celebrated date, it is the day when it is shared with family, we make special dinners, we buy toys and other gifts for children, moms, dads, siblings, grandparents and family or friends. However, we find that in these times this sense has deteriorated and often these dates become a few days of abuse of food, drink, parties and fun everywhere and to buy gifts. For Christians, this liturgical time means to meet again with the Lord in the humility of a cradle, to worship the King of the Universe in a poor manger, and to think of the teachings of the baby Jesus.
But the true meaning of Christmas lies in recognizing that it is an opportune time to change things that we see are not right in our people; thank God for all the good that happened to us in the year, especially the gift of life; to look with an eye of hope all the way we have to go; getting closer to our loved ones; become more humane and sensitive people throughout our environment around us.
Christmas is a perfect opportunity and apology to reflect, to make plans, to reinforce our convictions, to correct those things that can be improved, to be better people and human beings. Nothing better than to do this Christmas season and surrounded by the people we love, those who accompany us and walk in our life next to us and with whom there are strong emotional bonds and affection.
That is why Christmas is synonymous with life and presence of multiple emotions, pleasant memories about the past, many anecdotes to tell. It is perhaps the most opportune moment to make peace and reconciliation between people, because all without exception are more sensitive and willing to share, negotiate, give and receive. At Christmas we are all brothers of heart and as such we must behave, to give and receive life, fullness and hope. At heart, what is demanded of you at Christmas is that you give love and hope, a smile of joy and a lot of optimism, a warm embrace and a lot of understanding.
