 We have a group of people who feel Christmas shouldn't be celebrated.


 Another group believes Christmas should be celebrated but every day.


 The third believes in celebrating Christmas on a holiday, precisely on the 25th of December every year.


 A lot of debates and documentations have occurred as a result of the choice of birthday being the 25th of December.


 The major argument holds onto the winter and summer periods with summaries that the set 25th of December wouldn't be the exact day which the Saviour of the world was born.



I Want To Share Why I Celebrate Christmas

 The relevance of the day of which Christ was born and the arguments that Christ never celebrated his birthday is fresh in many minds.

 But I want to share WHY I CELEBRATE CHRISTMAS WITH YOU!

 "One man esteemeth one day above another: another esteemeth every day alike. Let every man be fully persuaded in his own mind." (Romans 14:5).

 I don't see the necessity of you agreeing with me on Christmas celebration but I believe telling you why I Celebrate Christmas should make you understand my motives and the significance of the event, especially to myself.



What I Know About Christmas

 As a child, the most exciting period of the year was usually the Christmas season. 

 One significant thing I could remember was the new clothes my parent usually bought for me and my siblings. We called them, "Christmas clothes." 

 I would say we got new outfits which we wore for outings after church service.

 Usually, I and my siblings went to visit our friends and extended family members. We eat and drink to our satisfaction.

 We experience and share the love and forgiveness that keeps people binded as that was the period many people reconciled with one another.

 What I knew about Christmas is that it was the time Jesus Christ was born.

Why I Celebrate Christmas

 Honestly speaking with acknowledgement of historical backgrounds and commentaries about Christmas which I have come to know, Christmas was what made me know at first that Jesus Christ was born into the world.

 Christmas reminded me of the birth of Jesus Christ on Earth and what He came to do.

 As a child, if you were to ask what Christmas is about, you will often hear it's about the birth of Jesus Christ, the son of God! 

 He may not have been born on Christmas day, but Christmas made me know that Jesus Christ was born into this world. 

 That's the purpose for me and it's very significant; making Jesus Christ known.

 Regardless of any previous occasions, Christmas communicated the message of the Bible to me concerning the Christ.

Why I Celebrate Christmas As A Christian

 I have heard of many things concerning paganism with Christmas which has discouraged a lot of people from celebrating in remembrance, the birth of Jesus Christ.

 But the reason why I still Celebrate Christmas as a Christian is very simple; I never saw it the pagan way, I don't see it that way and will never see it that way. 

 What I see is Christ in the mass. I celebrate the truth that Christ was born, whether on a holiday or on a working day.

 "He that regardeth the day, regardeth it unto the Lord; and he that regardeth not the day, to the Lord he doth not regard it. He that eateth, eateth to the Lord, for he giveth God thanks; and he that eateth not, to the Lord he eateth not, and giveth God thanks." (Romans 14:6).

 I'd prefer the December period as it is to remember in celebration, the birth of Jesus Christ.

 Regardless of the crisis, I will still celebrate the Christ in gratitude to God.

More Reasons Why I Celebrate Christmas

 I have more reasons why I Celebrate Christmas. I can't share all on this page but will still say a few more reasons why I Celebrate Christmas in December inclusive. 

 The Reason Why I Celebrate Christmas is because of the expression of God's love towards us in Christ Jesus

  "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." (John 3:16).

 "But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." (Romans 5:8)

 Why I Celebrate Christmas is because Jesus Christ was born

  "For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace." (Isaiah 9:6).


 Another Reason Why I Celebrate Christmas is the joy that follows

 "And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.

 And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.

 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.

 And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.

 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,
 
 Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

 And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things that they had heard and seen, as it was told unto them. (Luke 2:7-14 and 20).

 This story is a memorable one and worth celebrating, whether on a holiday or on everyday. It's my choice to celebrate Christmas and you should respect it.
