9 Things Christians Experience During the Christmas Season

‘Tis the season, our prime time as Christians: Christmas. Here are nine things we all experience at this time of year.

1. Telling, hearing or overhearing someone say to someone else: “Jesus is the reason for the season.” He is, and we love sharing this with people!

 

2. The excitement of opening the window on the Advent calendar to find out what’s behind.

 

3. Placing the spider on the Christmas tree. For reference: kraftmstr.com/christmas/books/spider.html.

 

4. Christmas Eve service is like a mini-reunion as all your friends are home from college and “Oh, you got a boyfriend? Do tellโ€ฆ.”

 

5. The birthday cake for Jesus!

 

6. You or someone in your family is in the Christmas choir.

 

7. You were in the Christmas play at church as a child.

 

8. Getting excited about holding the candle at the Christmas Eve service as a kid.

 

9. Your face when someone says “Happy holidays!” or “Merry Xmas!”

 

What did we miss?

    Saying Merry Xmas is not bad either…. The X is a greek symbol for Christ. We use this in the Christian clubs an everything. Once the Atheist figured that out they stopped using it. That’s why it’s not that popular like it used to be.

    While I may understand people being annoyed if someone says “Happy Holidays!”, I have one reason why I might use that phrase. That would be: Holiday is actually derived from Holy Day and Christmas is a Holy Day, is it not? So, instead of saying Holiday say Holy Day.

      I love fire, it’s kinda like God’s flame inside you is in front of your eyes. The problem is, when you try to see too much of it and you light something on fire, you get hurt by trying to understand too much of who he is without simply believing. ๐Ÿ™‚

    What’s wrong with Happy Holidays, though?

      I honestly have no problem with it- especially since not everyone celebrates Christmas and since it includes Thanksgiving and New Years, too. But some christians don’t like it because they dont want to focus on kwanza or hannukah just christmas.

    I LOVED being in the Christmas play at church! Getting to play Mary was the goal all through elementary school.
