Season's Greetings!

How do I stay focused on the true meaning of Christmas?

For me, it comes down to one word: Gift. In the Christian story, gift is a central image:

~ God comes into the world as a gift of love and transformation.

~ The baby is an unexpected gift to Mary and Joseph.

~ And the Magi bring extraordinary gifts to the Holy Family.

So the best way to keep Christmas? Gift. Give gifts to others. Be a gift to others.

As a kid, I remember a TV commercial that said, "You don't have to be Jewish to like Levi's Rye Bread." I think the same goes for Christmas.

~ You don't have to be Christian to like Christmas.
