Christmas day, a few questions and meaningfulness

First of all, i want to say -- Merry Christmas!! Hope you all are having a wonderful Christmas with your family!
So i just want to write a meaningful post (at least i hope it's meaningful to you) about Christmas! :)

here is a question I'm going to answer, just a simple question. with a lot of meaning.

What does Christmas mean to you? Well, Christmas isn't just being with your family, or opening presents, or even giving presents. It's about Jesus' birth. That's a pretty big deal, God sent an angel to Mary and told her she was having a baby. I mean that's big. Specially because she was engaged to Joseph. And at first Joseph didn't believe her, but then he had a dream. So anyway she was about to have Jesus and, you remember when you were really little and in Sunday school they would say "there was no room in the inn"? well the Bible never mentioned that. I remember though, my dad saying they were in a house and the barns were connected to the house so somehow they ended up in the barn I'm still not sure how though. But i think one of the cool parts in this story ((besides Jesus getting born)) was when the angels came and told the shepherds that Jesus was born...the shepherds. People looked at the shepherds as the lowliest of the lows. I think that's neat. That when the Son of God was born, God chose to tell the shepherds. So that's just and overview on how Jesus was born if you want to read the whole story you can read it in the bible in Luke chapters 1and2. 

So that's what Christmas means to me :D  It's not about the gifts or the family and friends (don't get me wrong, those are a big part of Christmas. I'm not saying it's wrong to give or receive gifts, or to spent time with your family I'm just saying Christmas is about Jesus. So it's a celebration and a remembrance!) Though I don't know what Christmas would be like without my family there beside me!


Now i would like to end this post with two songs ~
Away in a manger 
Away in a manger,
no crib for His bed,
The little Lord Jesus
lay down his sweet head.
The stars in the sky
looked down where He lay
The little Lord Jesus,
asleep on the hay.

The cattle are lowing,
the poor Baby wakes,
But little Lord Jesus,
no crying He makes;
I love Thee, Lord Jesus,
look down from the sky
And stay by my cradle
till morning is nigh.

Be near me, Lord Jesus,
I ask Thee to stay,
Close by me forever,
and love me, I pray!
Bless all the dear children
in Thy tender care
And take us to heaven,
to Live with Thee there.

And

Jingle bells!

Dashing through the snow
In a one horse open sleigh
O'er the fields we go
Laughing all the way hahaha!
Bells on bob tails ring
Making spirits bright
What fun it is to laugh and sing
A sleighing song tonight

Oh, jingle bells, jingle bells
Jingle all the way
Oh, what fun it is to ride
In a one horse open sleigh
Jingle bells, jingle bells
Jingle all the way
Oh, what fun it is to ride
In a one. horse. opeeeen sleighhhhhhh!

FYI i tried to sing jingle bells everyday till Christmas, since a long time ago at least 3-5 months ago! So anyway just in case you were wondering :D

Merry Christmas!
