O come Emmanuel!

Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel shall come to thee oh israel! Christmas is here again. Tis the season to be jolly indeed. Yes, get excited and hopeful and have a merry christmas and a happy new year! Christmas is not about santa claus and buying fancy gifts and eating yourself silly! ("although i have to admit, i look forward to christmas lunch").



Christmas has been commercialized just like weddings. There is too much stress to make your Christmas perfect. To send out the perfect cards and buy the perfect gifts for your friends and family, so much pressure that we end up frustrated and even depressed during the so called festive season.



Wake up people! Christmas is about first and foremost, Emmanuel being born in our hearts. We have been waiting for him. Santa is usually the main symbol for Christmas these days. However this is very wrong indeed. Christmas reminds us of the birth of our savior, Jesus Christ. Yes rejoice, for the wait is over and our savior has come down to redeem us. Peace to all men of goodwill! And since he is re-born in our hearts and families, may you truly receive the true message of christmas which is Love. This is the time to examine our lives in the past year. Have we tried to be better people? This is the time to give back to others and not expect somethng in return. This is the time to draw closer to God.



Don't forget to enjoy yourself. Have fun, relax and be merry. Do not pot too much pressure on yourself and others to make christmas "perfect". Spend this season with your family and friends and forgive those who have wronged you! May Emmanuel come into your homes and your hearts!
Merry Christmas and a Happy new year to you all!
