What's the true meaning of Christmas?
Recently I came across a picture of one of Banksy's graffiti, showing crucified Jesus Christ holding in his hands full bags of Christmas shopping.
My reaction was immediate. This image fascinated me in an instant because I realized how true this picture was!
It seems like nowadays Christmas is all about shopping, starting of
buying gifts for our relatives, modern gadgets/toys for kids and new clothes for ourselves ( because you can't wear the same dress from last year on your Xmas party!!!)
Then when it comes to food we go crazy mad about it! We stuffing our fridges to the brim , like there was a serious threat of nuclear attack! Ha!
Not to mention that our stomach will suffer 100 times more then our fridge ,when all the food, sooner or later ,will end up in your mouth! :P
So what's Christmas all about?
My first guesses are:
* Christmas rush
Well, that looks pretty shallow, right? But when I think more about it, few other things come to mind.
For me Christmas is a special time when my hart melts in the warmth of the winter holiday and all grudges and resentments go aside, and all I want is to be around people I care about and wish everybody in the world all the best!!!
And what Christmas holiday means to you?
