breeze and winter chills, snow is already falling at the northren and western part of the world. While those who are in tropical countries are now experiencing the coldness of the season. This day is the first day of the month of december, the most awaited month of the year. This month many miracles will happen.
This is the month where family, relatives and friends gather together in one house to bond and share stories with each other. Warm house would also warm the hearts of many as they, eat, sing, dance, laugh and pray together as one family in Christ. All the malls all over the world as well as the grocery stores have already a cash registers that are flowing with money, as a lot of people are doing some last minute christmas shopping to see to it that almost all their loved ones would have some gift to open during the christmas day and for them to have something to eat during the christmas eve.
A lot of families have already planning something to do during this long vacaton and a lot have already plans going abroad, or just visit their family at the province or just paying their grand parents a visit and celebrate the most wonderful time of the year with them. Here in the Philippines this is the time of the year where indigenous people living at the mountains get a chance to go down at the city bringing their hand held drums and indigenous guitars to sing a chirstmas song in their own native dialect to all the houses they got to pass by in exchange of a small amount of money or food to help them survive the night.
In the catholic church, the first candle of the advent have already been lit last sunday and when all the four candles would finally be light up, that is an indication of the start of the nine mornings or the dawn masses where family wake up very early in the morning just to attend mass and hear the good news of salvation.
The name of St. Claus or St. Nicolas would be widely use at this time of the year. People form all over the world be very busy dressing up their homes with brillant christmas light and wonderdul christmas decorations. Christmas trees would be filled with gift.
But let us remember that the most important thing of all, christmas is not all about St. Claus, christmas lights, decoration nor the gift, but this is the time to share, a time to care, a time to love, a time to give joy and happiness but most of all this is the time to PRAY and celebrate the BIRTH OF JESUS CHRIST.
Let us not forget to share what we have to our less fortunate brothers and sisters who are in dire poverty and have constantly eating foods from the garbage bins and those who are homeless and we must also take time to visit those who are inside the prisons.
After all, CHRISTMAS is the perfect time to make MIRACLES HAPPEN. Let us help make this world a better place, not just for our sakes but also for the sake of our future generation, it would be great to live them with the good values and the true meaning of christmas.
Have a BLESSED CHRISTMAS everyone and a WONDERFUL NEW YEAR as well!!!
