Christmas is Near

The Christmas spirit is here. There is really a change in the weather the feeling and the general atmosphere when Christmas is near. My son keeps on asking me how many days are left before Christmas? I told him the other day that its 30 days till Christmas and he would invent or rewrite the lyrics of the song the 12 days of Christmas to something like on the 30th day of Christmas my true love sent to me . . . . and so on. And then he asked me . . . Dad, why do we have Christmas? It’s such a simple question from a simple mind and yet if we contemplate for a moment and ask ourselves, why indeed do we celebrate Christmas? I ask her ate, my daughter to answer his question and she replied with . . .to celebrate the birth of Jesus.  Indeed she is right. Reflect further on her answer and think . . why do we really celebrate Christmas the birth of Jesus? I leave you to ponder on this. Advance Merry Christmas to everyone. Peace!
