    What would Christmas be without the Christmas Trees, Gifts and Decorations?

    Is it far-fetched to have a Christmas void of all that's mentioned above. Will it still be a 'Merry Christmas" if all you get is 'just time with families and loved one'?

    Christmas is not the trees, gifts, decorations or anything else.  Christmas is a time to join together with family and/or friends to celebrate the birth of Christ and be grateful that we could get together one more year in celebration of the time of year and our love for each other.

      Amen, to that! Sadly, the world around us seem to be oblivious to the true meaning of Christmas. It's not about the 'things', but the 'who', Jesus Christ.

    A time for great and fantastic food, and a chance to spend time with my husband. I'd leave the family out if there were no decorations and gifts. Just relaxation time, a nice warm fire, and plenty of movies to watch.

      And that would be a time well spent. Thank you.

    I still celebrate Christmas, even without the decor. And it's even true with an elder I love about to reunite with Jesus. I would like to commemorate the day of His birth and that's what matters the most!

    Simply Beautiful.  Pack everyone up and head to the snow.  There are many trees there.  There are many gifts from the land and mountains, and what color from the blue sky. 
    Happy Holidays and dress warmly...

    That depends on why you celebrate Christmas.
    From a Christian perspective Christmas is about celebrating Jesus dying for our sins and rising from the dead and giving us a new life.
    So, yes from that perspective with or without presents , trees and decorations, the day is worth celebrating, even if you have no tangible thing to show for it.
    Being alive, and having your loved ones are surely worthy of celebrations, don't you think?

      Yes, It is.
      Christmas for a christian is a day to celebrate the 'Hope' that came down from heaven to earth out of love for all mankind. That, needs to be celebrated everyday, with or without decorations.

    I like the trimmings and the decorations at Christmas. But I think the real meaning of Christmas is to have a big and love filled heart and to pray for people with a big open heart at Christmas.

      Yes, safiq ali patel, that is what Christmas is about, and more.
