Christmas is gift giving, because Jesus Christ gave His blood for us as a gift and the reason for the Christmas celebration. It’s the greatest gift that a man can receive without men realizing it. However, Santa Claus became the reminder of gift giving , instead of Jesus.
The Deceiver(Satan) had done things to celebrate Christmas on his own way, so that the true meaning of the celebration will be centered not on Jesus , but of worldly material thing, which is ruled by Satan. Santa Claus came over in replacement of Jesus Christ -the gift of life and the former , the material or worldly gift, which is happening around the world.
Most people also write Christmas as Xmas for abbreviation or shortening it. For whatever information does it mean to have X on Christmas, I personally do not agree with it. X means death or removing of Christ in the mas or mass which means sacrificial offering. Sacrificial offering is the offering of blood for others which Jesus did on the cross for our salvation. This could mean a blasphemy for me or a happy taunting of Santa Claus when he said, “ho ho ho, merry Christmas”. It’s like he’s happy with the death of Jesus Christ. Or am I just too doubtful of peoples’ mind.
Christmas might be originated from the pagans, who do not believe in our God, it must be the mind of the deceiver that made it that way, so that people will be deceived. As I always said, Deception is a half truth and a half lie.
I love to celebrate Christmas, but thinking how most people celebrated it, and thinking how the Deceiver used it to deceive people, it’s so sad that most people does not realize the real meaning of it.
So, it’s not Santa Claus that is coming to town, but Jesus is !
