Real meaning of Christmas

It doesn’t really seem like Christmas this year. Could it be because there is no snow here.

Only five more days till one of the most important days. I’ve been thinking a lot and it really upsets me how the real meaning of Christmas gets lost. “What’s the meaning of Christmas?” I asked the little girl that I babysit for. “It’s when santa brings us everything that we want…only if we were good all year!”

This makes me think…

Someday when I have little children of my own I won’t be telling them about Santa instead I want Jesus to be the main focus. I know that is not very traditional if you are living in America. But why would I want my kids thinking that a magical man in a red suit is leaving them gifts. I want my children to know that every gift is from God.

It’s weird how the message one month ago quickly gets changed and it is no longer about being thankful.
