Celebrating Christmas-The Way God Wanted Us To

Author : CD Mohatta



2000 years ago, in the city of Bethlehem, a baby was born in a manger. He was the child of God, born to a virgin. Jesus came into the world, as a promise made to Abraham, that one day he would send his son to the world to save us from our sins. Thus, formed the beautiful story of Christmas. This is the story, told to children for generations. We believe and trust in Jesus. Every Christmas, we celebrate this festival with zest and excitement. All year round we wait for the Christmas season. We decorate our houses with bliss and adoration. The preparation of cake, the decoration of Xmas trees and visiting our family and friends, surround our main idea of Christmas.

In all this mess, we forget the main purpose of Christmas. God sent his son into this world, so that he could bring to smile to every one's face. It is our duty, as children of God to spread happiness all around us and not only to our families and friends. On an occasion like Christmas, we should help the unfortunate who don't have anyone to celebrate Christmas with. This is the best gift we could give our Lord. So this Christmas, instead of blasting music and annoying our neighbors, let us plan something worthwhile for our less fortunate brothers and sisters. Below are a few Christmas ideas you could use in order to follow the true meaning of Christmas:

(1) Plan a Christmas party in an orphanage:
It is an amazing feeling, to see these children smile, because you have done something special for them. When we were small, we have memories of our Christmas being surrounded with our parents making it as special as possible, to us. These children, have no one to care for, but they too deserve a lot love and care. Jesus said, 'Let the children come to me and do not stop them'. Jesus really loved children. On his birthday, what could be a better gift than to plan a Christmas celebration, for these children. Plan a small celebration, at an orphanage. You could decorate the place, arrange for homemade Christmas dishes specially prepared, get them Christmas gifts etc. Spend the day with them, tell them stories and organize games for them. Make the day as special as possible for them.
