Every family has their own style of Christmas. Usually it’s our parents that make the decision on what Christmas is all about. Our grandparents also influence the type of Christmas we celebrate. But the head of the family is our parents and they make the finally decision. It was not different with God. God being our Father and also in charge of the universe, makes the finally decisions about our lives here on earth. God didn’t make the celebration of the day Christmas. Man made that decision. But God decided to sent His son Jesus to earth to redeem us. With that decision, Man wanted to celebrate the birth of Jesus. Our family, grandmother, parents, aunts and uncle and all my cousins would gather at our home for food and presents. When we were young, we were 8 boy cousins and no girls. It was a lot of football, basketball and baseball. When we got older and our grandmother and our parents went on, our traditions changed. My cousins are spread out over this country. It hard to get together for the holidays. But the traditions are still there, celebrating the family, especially Jesus and our family. God spoke to me and told me that He couldn’t wait for me to get home. I want to go home not just for the holidays, but forever. So, celebrate the Christmas holidays knowing the God is except you home to celebrate with Him.
Joyeux Noel et bonne annee.
