Why Do We Celebrate Christmas Every Year?

Christmas is a time of giving – receiving things is just a part of it. We don’t just give gifts to each other; we give them our love and our time. We come together as one unit to eat, drink, talk, and be merry. It is important to know that the meaning of Christmas varies amongst those who celebrate it.

However, at the heart of it, the season is about love. It is about the love we share with our friends and family and God’s love for us. It is the love Jesus taught us to give each other by coming in to this world. We take that love and share it with each other by giving them gifts and making memories that we’ll cherish for a lifetime.

Christmas is a Time for Sharing Our Love with Others
Christians believe that God’s love is unconditional and unending. That is why it is believed that He came to Earth as a man. This man was named Jesus and he showed everyone a new perspective of love. It was one which urged us to love everyone, regardless of who they may be. While it may seem bizarre at first, this list even includes our enemies – something that is necessary for us to attain peace. You have to show love to receive love.

Christmas Can be a Time for Forgiving Others
Christmas marks the birth of Jesus Christ. It is believed that God made all of us in His image. This is reinforced by the fact that Jesus looked like an ordinary man. He wasn’t an angelic-looking being that stood out from the rest of us. What did stand out were his actions and practices. He taught everyone the importance of forgiving.

And these teachings are just as important to this day!

Almost all of us have experienced anger toward someone who wronged us, regardless of how old we are. Have you felt that anger consuming your energy and mental health? You can calm your thoughts by forgiving them and moving on. Has someone recently upset you? Have them over for Christmas and try and rekindle your relationship with them. This season is perfect for that.

Christmas Brings People Closer to Each Other and to God
Christmas is a time of year in which Christian communities can come together to be closer to each other and to God. There is a shared sense of love, care, and closeness that is best understood through first-hand experience. Christmas offers you the opportunity to share both happy and spiritual experiences with friends, family, and even strangers.

Christmas is a Time to Reach out to Everyone
It is also important to note that Christmas is not exclusively celebrated by Christians. We must take this opportunity to invite other members of our local communities – Christian or otherwise – to experience love and care. Jesus was a prime example of loving others. Be as inclusive as possible, and allow others to experience the same joy that you do every year on Christmas.

Last Few Words
Just like Christmas is the season of giving to others, the event can be considered a gift to us from God. He gave us this day to spend time with our friends and family. An amazing effect of Christmas is that its positivity doesn’t stop there. It helps us move forward into the next year with hope and love.

It’s important for young people to carry on this positivity each year. It will give them the opportunity to grow into better people. Christmas gives each of us a shared sense of communal belonging, in which all of us are dedicated in spreading the Good News, i.e. being good and doing good acts. Christmas is God’s gift to us. It is written: “for God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” (John 3:16)
