As time goes on we spend more time looking at secular Christmas than we do looking at the true meaning of Christmas. Many kid TV shows try and help kids remember the true meaning of Christmas but too many of them do not get the point across clearly. Lots of time when you watch these kids shows that talk about the true meaning of Christmas they are talking about giving is better than receiving. They do not talk at all about Christmas being the birthday of Jesus. However, it seems it is not only kids that are looking at Secular Christmas but parents as well. This is because they spend a lot more time out shopping when really it should not be about shopping. It is always nice to give someone a gift, and families do use this holiday as a time to spend time together. However, you should be spending time together talking about what really matters around Christmas time. Many people have different ways of celebrating Christmas and if they want to look more at the secular Christmas there is nothing you can do to stop them. People are going to live the way they want to live. All you can do is live the way you feel like you should live. If you want to step away from secular Christmas then you should teach your kids about the true meaning of Christmas. This is something that can only be done by you.
Either way you look at Christmas it is a time for all of us to spend time with our families, and in the end I think that is what really matters. Christmas is a time where we can finally be with family and that is what is really important. It seems like we are all too focused on TV, school, and work to spend time with each other. I know that these are things that need to be done (except watching TV which can be done without), but we cannot forget our families. No matter what you believe in, you have to admit that families are important either way and that this is something that can bring up closer together. I hope that all families can start spending more time together because I feel that is what really matters. In the end you have to be with your families.
