Blogmas Day 8: What Really Is Christmas

Christmas is celebrated on December 25th and is both a sacred religious holiday and a worldwide cultural and commercial phenomenon. For two millennia, people around the world have been observing it with traditions and practices that are both religious and secular in nature.

It is my dear Lord and savior’s birthday. I love me a whole lot of Jesus!

Popular customs include exchanging gifts, decorating Christmas trees, attending church, sharing meals with family and friends, and, of course, waiting for Santa Claus to arrive.

AOB: Christmas is all about food food food and more food. The phrase on the street is ‘enjoyment after enjoyment‘ and although this was recently edited to ‘enjoyment after enjoyment leads to poverty,’ it has been bashed as negative energy! Who wants negative energy- nobody. Thank you!

Christmas also means family time, long holidays, traveling for some, watching and listening to Christmas carols all over, going to church for the third time in the year ie before the covid19 and its lockdowns…etc

It also draws us to the end of the year when we get to finally see our lives throughout the year and the mess we have been and resolve to do the ‘New Year New Me’ thing. This usually lasts till mid-January.

What really is Christmas to you?

Thank you.

I am the Sparrow
