It's Christmas :):)
Living in a place where most of the people wonder what Christmas is? or assume it to be just the festival of Santa and gifts and chocolates...it's difficult to explain to them what Christmas really is..
Every time I hear people telling me..."hey pj this time what new have you bought for Christmas..??", "How are you decorating your house?", "When would be the Santa coming at your place?" I feel is Christmas all about this? No.
It surely has a more divine and important message..
The message is Humility which is followed by simplicity.
Jesus Christ was not born in a grand palace. He was not born to very wealthy or learned parents. Also He was not born in the full blaze of daylight with the knowledge of all men. Jesus Christ was born in a simple lowly place, a corner of a stable. He was born to humble and poor parents, who had nothing to boast about, except their own spotless character and holiness.
Also He was born in the darkness in the obscure hour of midnight, when no one even knew about it, except a few Divinely blessed people.The quality of true humility is one of the indispensable fundamentals. Then we find simplicity, holiness and the renunciation of all desire for worldly wealth and pride of learning.
This is the message I would like to give it to all of you too...
Yes..buying new clothes, decorating your houses with stars and bells ain't bad..but that shouldn't make us forget the true spirit of this festival...
Wishing you all a Merry Christmas...
