There is no new “true meaning of Christmas” just the same as it has always been. I don’t really understand why someone would want to change a tradition that has been going on for centuries. But they, those few, are relentless at their attempt to remove Jesus from His own birthday.
This is the definition according to Answers.com:
Yes capitalism has worked its way into this wonderful day in which we commemorate our Savior’s birth, and yes, I believe a bit too much. For the Christian although, we still know and understand that we are celebrating our Savior’s birth, as we remember that He left God the Father’s side out of eternity to be born of a virgin, in order to express the Father God’s love to all of mankind.
Yes its about the Love of our Creator and His Son Jesus, that’s all. There is no threat to anyone, there is no reason or justification for anyone to be offended, nothing. Just a thankful heart of a person mature enough to commemorate the birth of God who truly loves us for who we are, and not what we are.
To anyone who has any other opinion of what Christmas day is about, I would suggest that you read the account of it which is found in the Holy Bible, and understand that the Holy Bible is an ancient Love Letter written to you by God, written over 1,500 years by some 40 authors, from kings to paupers, inspired by God Himself. All with the same common purpose of communicating God’s love for you. All summed up in these two verses :
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. John 3:16,17 (New King James Version)
So with this I say to you, Merry Christmas and a happy new year.
