The Christmas post.

25 Dec
Per Natale vorrei una stella lucente e bella. ...

As bloggers, I think we’re compelled to write a Christmas post. Everyone has to say something “new” about Christmas. Actually, we need to look in the past for us to really understand the meaning and relevance of Christmas.

Now I’m not gonna write a history lesson about it. Who wants to read a long blog post during Christmas anyway? So I’ll just give you guys some quick facts.

  • Christmas wasn’t really December. Remember the shepherds who went to see the newborn Christ? They were raising sheep. Not the kind of activity you do on a chilly weather.
  • No one said Christ was visited by 3 kings. The Bible said they were wise men. And it also didn’t specifically say they were just 3.
  • The bright star that the shepherds follow was actually a planet. The planet Venus.

That day, God became man. A sign of his great love to us.
