it is the celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ! even though, some believe that Jesus was actually born in, i think spring or something...it still means that to me and everyone i know. it is also the celebration of giving. thats where presents come into. when people came from all over to bring gifts to him when they heard their savior was born. we give presents because its like a tradition.

To me, it has two meanings. The lighter side is that christmas is the spirit of giving and peace. On the darker side, it is the best holiday to show how the christian faith has stolen parts of pagan stories (which even at that, were mostly stories to explain the world), and made people believe they are in reality, a fact... all in all, I think it’s the perfect holiday, both federal and christian... the christians can go to their mass, and us athiests can sit at home and really ponder the meaning of Seperation of Church and State.

the original meaning of christmas is the the birth of Jesus. presents are to be given and this is a time to rejoice and celebrate. however, we’ve turned it into spending, spending, spending!!! i’m always broke after christmas and it’s beginning to get where i don’t even like to see it come anymore. it just means i have to go broke, and drive all over the place seeing everyone...such a drag! i do like the true meaning though because i’m a christian.

Xmas is when Robot Santa flies here from Neptune to punish everyone that he considers naughty.
And to give Zoidberg a pogo stick.

The true meaning is as it says:

Christ Mass. It is the celebration of the birth of Jesus.

And as such it is also a time for families to get together for giving of gifts, for enjoying the bounty God has given us (food, health, homes, love in our lives).

Sadly, it is also a tragically commercialized season now, much more so than I remember as a kid.
