    Weekly Topic Inspiration: The Meaning of Christmas, Hanukkah & Kwanzaa

    It might seem early, but just like many stores out there, you can benefit from getting on the Christmas bandwagon early by writing your winter holiday Hubs now. This gives them enough time to gain some standing in search engine results before the traffic arrives in full.

    That’s why this week’s Weekly Topic Inspiration theme is the real meaning of Christmas (courtesy of kat11)! Join us in the forums for some inspiration and some commonly searched-for terms to get you started: http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/85984

    Isn't it strange that we just celebrated the 10-day holiday "Diwali" in India, also called "The Festival of Lights?" And, Hanukkah has always been called, "The Festival of Lights." While Kwanzaa also Lights Up The Room and many Light up their Christmas tree.

    The common thread to bring "Light Unto This World" means we should start respecting each other, treat others with compassion and kindness, and do not do unto others that which you would not like done unto you. Simply start thinking of our actions in an ethical and moral way to bring in the LIGHT! Blessings, Debby

    On Christmas Eve 1915, German soldiers in the western front trenches sang Christmas carols as so brought about a short truce to the hostilities of the first world war.  On Christmas Eve 1995 in the Algerian village of Tribhirine, a group of Muslim terrorists, intent on violence to the monks of the monastery of Our Lady of the Atlas Mountains, left in peace, acknowledging the religious significance of the Christian feast day.  For me Christmas means the possibility of forgiveness and reconciliation and new beginnings in hope. It means peace in our hearts, in our homes, communities and between nation enemies.  Peace, not brought about through the might of national armies and fire power, but through the wonder, joy and vulnerability of a babe,
