Christmas Is. . .

What is Christmas? I'm sure there would be as many answers as there are people.

Christmas is a holiday.

Christmas is hectic.

Christmas is Jesus birthday.

Christmas is peace on earth, good will toward men.

To me, Christmas is revisiting my youth, and looking toward the future. It's celebrating traditions, both old and new, with my family. It's reveling in the gift of God's son with the biggest birthday blowout of the year :-)

Billy Graham said, "Christmas is the celebration of the event that set heaven to singing, an event that gave the stars of the night sky a new brilliance."

Now I'd like to know what Christmas is to you.

  3. It's all the things you said! I really love the traditions. I have an interview coming up on Camy Tang's blog Dec. 12 where I talk about all my family traditions--one of which was going to Pizza Hut before the candlelight service every year. :)
