Giving: The True Spirit of Christmas

.
When I was a kid, I was too excited to long for the coming of Christmas season. So glad to listen to Christmas songs and enjoy my peers going out at night singing carols to every home of our neighbors.

At school before we take our week-long Christmas vacation, we had Christmas party, parlor games and exchanged gifts among our classmates. We're too excited opening our gift received in exchange of our gift wrapped in Christmas wrapper.

What had ingrained into our mind as kid is expecting a gift during that joyous seasons of the year from "Santa Claus" whom we believed did exist. But as we grew older, we realized that the true "Santa Claus" is our thoughtful, loving and caring parents.

The more serious one is the appreciation of the true spirit of Christmas, the unfeigned love of our Heavenly Father who gave His Only Begotten to save us from our sins. Jesus' birth is the realization of this divine love for all mankind.

In return we know that we do serve our fellow in making them happy during Christmas season by offering them their basic needs especially the poor and the needy.

Thus, we have realized that it's more blessed to give than to receive. Merry Christmas!
