The True Meaning of Christmas

Leslie Collins, Writer

To me a lot of people during Christmas only care about the presents, and they think that’s all that matters, but its not. Christmas is all about enjoying the company of family and friends. Especially family that you never really see except for the holidays, that to me is the true meaning of Christmas. Not the presents and flashy things that people get. It is all about family, friends, and love. The presents are just a bonus during the holidays. It’s the time of year to cheer people up during the cold, depressing times.  In the Bible John 3:16-17 says, “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. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.” This is the greatest Christmas gift of all.
