Hi to everybody,
Christmas is here again and it is time to give gifts and share with our loved ones the blessings of the birth of Christ. The spirit of Christmas for all the years that past has somehow changed. It has changed with the movement of time, people’s perception has changed about it, it is more commercialized, etc., and it seems that the true spirit of Christmas is slowing dissipating because a lot of people have become more projected to what is material than what is spiritual. Of course, Christmas is not celebrated all around the world because of religious beliefs and inclinations, but in some points in non-christian countries, Christmas is celebrated because of its commercial value – no more, no less -. I came from a christian country where people heavily believe in the spirit of Christmas, at least, during my time as a youngster. Now, things are different in my country. Values have changed, beliefs have likewise changed, people’s attitudes and way of life and standards. Gone are those days when children go to visit their godparents to greet them Merry Christmas without much of expectation insofar as what gift is received. Now, Christmas gifts are more complex as life itself is. Just as I would like to reminisce the past, I am hindered to do so because of the emotional content on how things are at this point in our time. And if I do so reminisce the past, it might leave me writing more pages than usual because I would only be expressing my thoughts. Emotions are high in this time of the year, people’s adrenaline is fired up, and adding up emotional backdrop to those who are suffering and struggling would not be a good choice of discussion to ponder on. What is important now is not to lose hope. Each time we wake up in the morning means a new hope remains in store for us. We should keep our hopes high that this world is able to find peace, tranquility and that those who are suffering – especially the poor – find their place in the sun. I would like to conclude this piece of thought and
I WISH EVERYONE MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A PROSPEROUS 2015!!!!
