Well it is nearly here. the time for peace on earth for all mankind. But as we gather our gifts and prepare to decorate our homes with enough lights to refit Vegas we should remember what it stands for. If you ask most people they would say to get that bike Santa never brought them as a child. Have we really forgotten the meaning behind this season?
Ok just so you don’t suddenly turn off let me just say I AM NOT SPREADING THE WORD. so with that done we shall proceed. the idea of Christmas is about the birth of Christ (its in the name..Christ..mas). Anywho the thing is the whole giving part, giving to those who have not got…that’s where Saint Nicolas comes in, a priest in the third century who spread the word of give to those less fortunate.
When i served in Bosnia in the 90’s i saw people with nothing who would offer what they could to guests, so why should those with so much not help out.
So this Christmas think of those kids who have nothing and spread a little love, you might only get a smile back but that should be enough.
