CHRIST in Christmas

When I was younger, my family never celebrated Christmas. The only reason I wanted to celebrate Christmas at home was I wanted presents/gifts, since all the Christmas movies I saw showed Santa Claus as source of presents. I like Santa Claus. I wasn’t much of a Christian then and my parents still don’t celebrate Christmas today due to their religious beliefs. I am now a Christian when I think about Christmas now, I think about the greatest gift God gave to mankind Jesus Christ. Now no earthly gift can be greater than that. He is the CHRIST in Christmas.

Isaiah 7:14 NKJV

Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a Son, and shall call His name Immanuel.
