What does Christmas mean to you?

Christmas means so many things to me!!  First and foremost though, it means the celebration of the birth of Jesus, our Saviour.  With so much going on nowadays when Christmastime rolls is very easy to lose sight of the real reason why we celebrate this time of the year.  Its easy to get lost in all the excitement of the holidays, the plays and concerts, the decorations, shopping, etc, etc.  You know how it is!  We should all sit down and reflect on what is really important.  It is this day out of the year that we celebrate Jesus' birth..what a spectacular day to rejoice in!!

Of course Christmas also has other meanings to me as well..being with family and friends..decorating..and baking among other things.  I'm so excited that next year we'll have a little one to celebrate Christmas with too!  We'll get to teach him/her about why we celebrate Christmas to begin with..and why its important.  So much joy is in this season!  Its definately my favorite time of the year!  The lights alone just draws my mind to a peaceful place.  I think thats why I'm so attracted to the blue me it just exudes peace.  Something we all need more and more in our lives. 

What does Christmas mean to you?



  1. I just love the whole "FEELING" of Christmas. I love the decor, the weather (when it's normal cool weather), the smells, the family time, the memories. I especially love the TRUE meaning of Christmas - and you described that perfectly :-) Christmas is all about the birth of Jesus Christ and I am so thankful and blessed to have him in my life! :-)

  2. Yes, it is so, so easy to get caught up in all the hustle and bustle and forget exactly why we celebrate in the first place. What a special thought that you will be able to share all the wonders of the season, and having a relationship with Jesus, with your little one! Love that!

    Your tree is so pretty lit up, too! The brighter the better in my opinion! ;)

    So glad you could link up!
