WHY CHRISTMAS ???

Christmas is celebrated by many around the world perhaps it unique story or may be the easiness it brings to all works of life–factories, offices, schools and even to the homeless. The fun, the gifts, the family gatherings, not to mention the decorations all of these  bring a constant reminder that the festive season is here.

Even though the United States joined the celebration of Christmas most recently compared to other parts of the world yet she contributes very huge to telling the story of the birth of Christ child. Yes, Sunday Schools in the United States began Christmas Celebration in the early 19th century. Alabama became the first state to grant legal recognition to X-Mas in 1836,  D C in 1870, by 1893 all states and territories had recognized the celebration of Christmas in the  U. S.  Thanks to the Roman Catholic faith that began the commemoration of the birth of Christ Child–Dec. 25th. Certainly the holiest event ever to take place anywhere on planet earth.

To date, many Americans if not all remember the Magi who travelled the east of Jerusalem to greet the babe in the manger with gift of gold, frankincense and myrrh. The Magi were wise men and their gifts were symbolic of tribute, worship and death–of Christ considered as King, God and the Sacrificial victim.

As we continue the great good of Christmas–love, gift-giving, merry-making, family and friends coming together, tinsel and brightly decorated packages; please let us remember the very poor, the most vulnerable–the War-Affected Amputees in developing countries need your prayers and support.
