The Meaning of Christmas

The Meaning of Christmas

For some, the meaning of Christmas is watching the story of the Mean One of Christmas, a.k.a. the Grinch. For others, the meaning of Christmas is rooted in lots of family traditions revolving around food, movies, gift giving, and decorating. There are lots of wonderful things to do year after year, but sometimes I wonder if they distract us from the true meaning of Christmas. How can we make sure we are not distracted, and that we are seeing the real significance of Christmas?

I love commercials. Yes, I am that person. While there are great commercials year round, Christmas is a special time where commercials just tug at my heartstrings. Yes, I cry at these. No, I'm not ashamed. Take a look below to get some Christmas cheer!

When I was younger, I would lurk around the Christmas tree, waiting for my mother to turn her back, so I could shake the brightly colored packages under its boughs. Even now as a college senior, I can't help but wake up earlier than usual to see what was stuffed in my stocking or to rip the paper off a present to reveal the book I have been patiently waiting to read.

I'm not counting, but Christmas is just twenty days away! To get in the Christmas spirit, I would suggest going out and immersing yourself in Christmas, and an easy way to do that is it visit spots with incredible Christmas light displays. This year, we've assembled the top five places within three hours of campus to go and get in the Christmas spirit.

The Christmas season is upon us at last! Hey friends, it's Emma here and I am so pumped that Christmas will be here in three days! Three. Days. SO much joy. This season is bustling with life and brings with it so many good things. If you're like me, in the midst of going home, buying presents, reuniting with family and friends, and everything in between it is so easy to lose focus on the purpose of Christmas. 

Finding Christmas Cheer

Finding Christmas Cheer

It was a winter's evening. Christmas lights illumined the tower, and the hum of voices filled the room. It should have been a cheery scene, but the topic of conversation lingered on finals,  to-do lists, and finding perfect gifts. Stress tangibly radiated from my dear friends as they recalled all they had to accomplish before Christmas break.
