It’s time to celebrate! To stop and remember why we celebrate Christmas. God – Jesus Christ, became one of us, so he could understand our feelings, pains, joys, so that he could understand the temptations we face and the joy of victories, the sadness, the happiness that we feel throughout our lives. Just for us. To be one of us, to live in us, to save us. That’s how much he loves us.
The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light. For those who lived in a land of deep shadows – light! sunburst of light! You repopulated the nation, you expanded its joy. Oh, they’re so glad in your presence! Festival joy! The joy of a great celebration, sharing rich gifts and warm greetings…
For a child has been born – for us! the gift of a son – for us!
