Christmas 2009

It's official, Christmas is over. I know you'll say that it'll not end until the feast of the Three Kings. But as I saw what happened today at Trinoma, I guess the spirit of Christmas is just a one day affair. Seriously, I saw people fighting over a line to the cinemas, fighting over seats as who did got it first, and fighting over taxis. Is loving your fellowmen only works on December 24 and some part of December 25 only? After that we return to hating each other, not thinking clearly and resorting to violence. You don't have to wait till Christmas to be good. You should do it all year round, not just because it's "Christmas". Now stop being a smart ass and say that we cannot afford gifts and festivities all year round. Christmas is not all that.We celebrate Christmas because Jesus was born to save us from our sins. That's what Christmas is all about. Heck it's written all over the name CHRISTmas. Don't wait till Christmas to do something good. Do a simple act of random kindess everyday and you'll see that everyday can be Christmas day.
