I associate Christmas with Christmas trees and trimmings, songs, carolling, noche buena, family reunions, gift giving, 13th month pay and other mundane things. But of course, minus the trimmings and funfare, Christmas means the baby born in the manger and that we should worship and give thanks for his coming. Usually people become depressed with the coming of the holiday season because we have become so materialistic in our celebration. We can always celebrate it simply by not really spending too much to avoid being stressed out...advance Christmas, too.

In my family Christmas is a religious holiday, celebrating the birth of our savior Jesus Christ. It is a celebration and the world begins anew. Everything has a meaning, some examples: wreath-neverending love, evergreen tree-new life. We start our celebration with Midnight Mass to await the birth of Christ and once he is placed in the manger, the festivities begin, lol.
