Hi there! I’m back again haha. I’m really sorry for this ‘on again-off again’ thing I’ve been doing, you know school and all, but I’m glad to be done for this term and it’s almost Christmas (yay!). I’m not really a fan of the holidays (I know, weird), I just don’t really feel any vibe when Christmas is here, coupled with the fact that I don’t really do anything special for the holidays, just stay home and watch TV.
I’m not saying that the idea of Christmas is vacuous or anything, in fact it’s the total opposite of that as it signifies the birth of Jesus Christ, the one who God sent to die for the world. So why don’t I feel the vibe? It’s because Christmas has lost its meaning over the years. I tend to forget that Christmas is about the birth of Jesus and focus on all the partying and food (btw I don’t eat that much and I get bored at parties haha). So with that on my mind, I tend to almost dread the coming of Christmas, but with time I’ve come to realise that Christmas is not just about the eating and drinking…
Christ was born in this season;
Heaven sent, this is the lesson,
Remember this, take time to reason;
In Bethlehem, born to die,
Sent by God, bringing redemption from the lie.
Think about this in your heart, because in the
Midst of all the merriment and party,
All this is about Jesus,
Sent down for a great cause.
So with that in mind, Give, Love, Rejoice!
Merry Christmas in advance!!!
