Christmas is everything to me. I have come to see Christmas in a different light unlike how I used to when I was younger. Christmas is no longer all about celebration and the merriment to me, but a season of thankfulness. Any time Christmas approaches, what comes to my mind is all about the significance of Christ's birth. It often made me to be filled with uncommon elation of reverencing my God for the favor He did for me, by sending Christ to the world during the period when it seemed doom and gloom for Christiandom.
This seriously got me wondered, what would have happened if God didn't send his only son Jesus Christ to the world to die for my sins, thereby reconciling me with my heavenly Father(God)? What would have happened to me as a condemned sinner? It would have been over for me.
Now you see the reason Christmas is no longer what it used to be to me, because I now understand better what the season is in its true essence of what it means.
Therefore, Christmas to me is a season of joy in knowing Christ was born to die for me, hence redeemed and saved me from the impending destruction of the world.
