For years, we have been saying that Christmas has become a commercial enterprise, with too much emphasis on shopping and buying.
And we often say that Christmas is really about enjoying fine food with family and friends, but maybe that isn’t quite right either.
The holiday is now preceded by endless articles and talk shows offering tips on how to “survive” a few hours of eating fine food with family and friends.
The stress and guilt associated with those decadent delicacies and social situations has reached a level where people feel that they cannot cope with it on their own.
This certainly has nothing to do with the meaning of Christmas, and each one of us must find a way to truly enjoy celebrating the birth of the Prince of Peace.
