The True Spirit of Christmas?

  • Favourite answer

    Hi Marcio de sampa,

    The true spirit of Christmas is generosity. Not the generosity of material gifts and presents, but the generosity of your own loving presence.

    Give more of your own loving presence and less of the token presents this year. Yes, there is pleasure in enjoying material gifts, but what is remembered, what lasts, is the presence of the loving soul giving love generously and unconditionally to another.

    This presence lasts for all time. This presence, you will carry with you beyond this life. This presents lives on in a loving legacy that flows from generation to generation.

    You remember such a loving presence from your childhood. A grandmother, grandfather, an uncle, an aunt, a member of your extended family, someone who saw you as you truly are and met you and greeted you with this recognition.

    Someone knew you deeply and loved you, encouraged you and connected you to some good place within yourself, and through their recognition, reinforced your own awareness of the goodness within you.

    Merry Christmas, Kisses!!

    Helda

    The true spirit of christmas IS giving. It is a time that we think about all those that we love and show our appreciation for them with a gift. This isn't just any gift; it does not have to be a material object. In fact it is best that it is not a material object and I'm not talking the latest electonics or the hottest fashion - that's all commercial BS. I mean the gift that is given with all your heart and soul and to see the joy in the other person when that gift is received. That joy is the spirit of christmas.

    Of course that is only part of it.....

    it quite is alive and properly in my abode and with my pals and kin. it quite is plenty too effective in theory and intending to be the rest. we've generations of traditions that we shop sturdy. they're actual, loving, relaxing and maximum severe to each persons. and that i'm no longer speaking approximately provides and decorations, besides the reality that they upload a marvelous custom and feeling to the Christmastide. and there is the religious area that's why we rejoice it to start with. For me, it''s the main severe time of the year! So ignore the corporate backside lines, client advertising assaults and mass advertising that tries to cut back it and actually submit to in suggestions what Christmas is quite all approximately. Love, sharing, togetherness and actual happiness. pass Christmas caroling. Have a Christmas ceremonial dinner with pals and kin. We do and continually will!

    its whatever you make it, since its technically a pagan celebration of the winter solstice. christians took it and claim it to be the birth of their god (which is really isnt). xmas is whatever you want it to be at this point.
