Christmas is the Return of the Light the winter solstice. The sun had been disappearing, faster & faster. The darkness would soon overtake the world, all would die. Then on December 25 on the Julian calendar, it started to return! All of Rome celebrated the festival of Saturnalia which later became Christmas.
Why Christmas is important?
Christmas holds the importance of many levels. It is a time for families and friends to come together and share and enjoy and celebrate the love and appreciation for each other they share. All of the gifts, the cards, the bows, the paper, the special food are, in so many ways, expressions of the love and appreciation that we hold for each other – whether that be as a family, friends, or even co-workers.
And of course, the economic impact of this does not go unnoticed by retailers. Christmas, coming right after the beginning of winter, is also, for some that last, almost seasonably comfortable time to get out and about and enjoy. As a Floridian, this seems foreign to me, but from some, I have heard that the idea of traveling to see someone, of having parties and gatherings as the temperatures dip lower and lower, is not really something to be considered as a fun time.
What is the true meaning of Christmas?
Christmas is a time for everyone to stop and just appreciate people. We give presents that show we care and we’ve put some thought into what makes them happy. We stop working to spend a day with them talking over a meal. We share rituals and traditions and sometimes even sing together (which is something people don’t do much of anymore).
We say an extra special greeting to strangers on the street because we have a special bond for a day which brings us all together. Sometimes we take time to remember those who don’t have what we have.
