CHRISTMAS!!!!! (Nearly)

Aiya!

Eeeeeeep! It's that time of the year guys! All of us Aussies are inside with the air con on full blast or getting scorched in the pool. Not to mention the carols, fairy lights, cooking, presents, and endless music and skit practices.

Christmas.

People who know my family and I, would know that we go slightly crazy around Christmas. Carols 24/7. Tree chopping and decorating at the start of December. House decorating and our lovely nativity set is begun in November. Carols start in October. It's a time full of love, prayers, and light.

We all love Christmas, and the meaning.

When I was about five, I remember asking my mum what made Christmas so special. Since then, I've read so much more of the Bible, and the AWESOMNESS of it all revealed itself. There are over 300 messianic prophecies in the Old Testement. And they started clearly in Genesis 3, when God tells Satan that from Eve will come a man who would crush Satan with his feet. So yeah, God is awesome.

But my favourite thing about Christmas is probably best described as this: the Light of the World Dwelling with Us.

His light in our world of darkness, evil, brokenness and chaos. The ultimate light.

Well, as it is around Christmas, I will admit that this post is short. But anyways! Happy Christmas everyone!

As I am Australian, I figured I should toss this in. (Apologies for the bad spelling.)



What do you like about Christmas?

  1. I love your description of Christmas. That's so beautiful and epic and WE ARE SO BLESSED.
    WE are the reason for the season...because that's why Jesus came. For us, even if we don't deserve it at all.

    1. Thanks!
      I know! It's so cool and something that we often foreget or under value. I also often hear people say that we shouldn't celebrate it! But it really is such an epic gift.
