Christmas is not a time nor a season, but a state of mind. To cherish peace and goodwill, be plenteous in mercy is to have the real spirit of Christmas. Calvin Coolidge.

Sunday, 16 December 2012


Christmas is right around the corner, but do we really understand what we are about to celebrate? For most people, it is a time where we take a couple of weeks off from school to play with the new toys that we are gifted on the 25th of December. However, there is so much more to Christmas than just getting presents and buying stuff for other people.

The real spirit of Christmas is all about giving. 
No matter what anyone says to you, the true spirit of the holiday is what you can GIVE to people as opposed to what you can receive. 

Things like family and good friends should not be taken for granted. We get so caught up in our car loans, prescription costs and other issues to really understand what is important in life.

The real meaning of Christmas is all about peace, love and forgiveness.
It isn’t about car loans, money and working more hours

The real meaning of Christmas is about the joy you can give to others and the appreciation for what you have, not what you are longing to receive.

One of the ways of doing it is holiday greetings!

Choose the greeting you like most and share it with us!

Here is mine -
to all of you!

  33. I wish my wrapping paper didn't get mangled.
    I wish the cost of presents was cheaper-
    I wish for most people the meaning of Christmas was deeper.
    I wish pine needles weren't so prickly-
    I pray at Christmas no one gets sickly.
    After wrapping boxes and putting on bows-
    I'll promise to still make time to see a few Christmas shows.
    Popcorn to nibble and holiday cocoa in mug-
    Phew! What I could really use is a holiday hug.
    As the wee hours unfold-
    and the magical story of Christmas is about to be told.
    The silhouetted candles flicker with light-
    As the Choir sings "Silent Night."
    I sit in church with my glistening tears-
    as the sacred hour of Christmas nears.
    I pray for those here and afar-
    To be deeply touched by the Christ Star.
    So that all the other 364 days a year-
    The Godly Spirit in them brings great cheer.
    So that the earth and all its inhabitants-
    make much better cohabitants.
    And so I pray this holy night for the earth's creatures great and small-
    Merry Christmas to us all!

    May you find all you've been given

  46. The poem about Christmas time:
    Lady, dear, if Fairies may
    For a moment lay aside
    Cunning tricks and elfish play,
    'Tis at happy Christmas-tide.

    We have heard the children say -
    Gentle children, whom we love -
    Long ago on Christmas Day,
    Came a message from above,

    Still, as Christmas-tide comes round,
    They remember it again -
    Echo still the joyful sound
    "Peace on earth, good-will to men!"

    Yet the hearts must childlike be
    Where such heavenly guests abide;
    Unto children, in their glee,
    All the year is Christmas-tide!

    Thus, forgetting tricks and play
    For a moment, Lady dear,
    We would wish you, if we may,
    Merry Christmas, Glad New Year!

  47. Its Christmas time again
    The season of renewal
    Love, faith, charity
    And all that is beautiful
    Chimes greatly in to every heart
    Beating in celebrations
    Of Spirit, togetherness, and affirmation.

  48. Wishing you the Gladness of Christmas,
    which is Hope, the Spirit of Christmas,
    which is Peace, the Essence of Christmas, which is Love.

  49. It’s Christmas time around the world,
    You’ll hear the Yule bells ring.
    It’s time for giving, time for love,
    It’s time for hearts to sing.
    Merry Christmas to you one and all,
    Goodwill and happiness,
    Good health throughout the coming year,
    May all your days be blessed.

  50. May this Christmas end the present year
    On a cheerful note and make way
    For a fresh and bright new year.

    Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

  59. My CHRISTmas Wish

    I am just a little girl but I wish today
    That boys and girls everywhere could have a place to play
    I wish that they could go to church and see a Christmas play
    About the baby Jesus who was born on Christmas day.

    If they went to see the play, this is what they'd see
    The little baby Jesus in the manger, oh, so sweet
    They would see His mother looking at a distant star
    That guided the wisemen to the manger from afar.

    They would see the animals standing all around
    And they would see the worshipers, kneeling on the ground,
    That brought the baby Jesus gifts of frankincense, gold and myrrh
    Yes, all the boys and girls would learn of baby Jesus birth.

    I have another wish today, for peace in all the lands
    That all the wars and bitterness would come to an end
    There would be no homeless to sleep out in the streets
    That they would have a place to live and plenty food to eat.

    I wish for peace and happiness for everyone on Earth
    That everyday would be like the baby Jesus birth
    Joyful and triumphant with homes that's filled with Love
    And we could honor Christ the King who's watching us with Love.

  60. In this X-mas,
    In the daytime if sun shine so shall Ur expectations come true,
    At night when moon comes out so shall U receive blesses,
    then if rain fall so shall it going to carry all your problem away from U!
    Happy Merry Christmas

  61. May ur neighbours respect you,
    Trouble neglect u,
    The angels protect u
    and Heaven accept u
    Happy Christmas and Happy Holiday

  62. Christmas is the Blessed season
    which engages the whole world
    in a conspiracy of love!

    and May all your christmases be white.

    The joy that you give to others,
