A compelling hub about Christmas being truly celebrated as it should be
Hub response to fellow hubber LaurinzoScott
This is a powerful message of a hub you recently wrote (located on image below), and very well put LaurinzoScott. This goes to show that its not always about the amount of contents one places into an article, but more about what's actually in it.
I sense you have a desire for the superficial world to no-longer be the focus, and for people to awaken to the more spiritual aspects of such a traditional belief and holiday.
I actually grew up roman catholic, and I do know that many people don't care to celebrate this holiday worldwide and its their prerogative, and as they say "it's to each ones own".
This is LaurinzoScott's hub article & link below to get there
As a youth I had doubts
Since my youth I chose not to practice such a faith, and my mother stopped celebrating the Christmas holiday, and soon began to celebrate Kwanzaa. I learned from this experience as a youth that holidays are whatever you choose them to be, for yourself and for your family.
Many of them have lost their true historical connection and authentic values, such as your hub illustrates and tells of such a well known reality.
I agree with you Laurinzo, that if something at all in life is to be worshiped or practiced, it shall only have its truest effects on people, if and only if they do such a thing as its intended to be. Now, today I choose not to ignore such a holiday though, and even if my mother prevented me from celebrating it as a child.
I do give gifts to my loved ones today, but only things that they are in dire need of, so this to me reinforces the true spirit of Christmas, which is love of self, of family, and for others worldwide. This love extends itself outwards to others, and when we share with one another so selflessly as the Three Wise Kings had done for Jesus.
This is what I believe is what Christmas gift giving is about, but commercial society and greed has surely taken us all away from the prime objective & as you stated the celebration of Christ's birth.
Many Christians and Catholic's do indeed celebrate it as its once been done in ancient times as well, but its not every church that conducts such religious traditional ceremonies.
Merry Christmas! bro, and a Happy New Year to all!!
