The traditions surrounding Christmas stir warm feelings in the hearts of many—young and old alike—all over the world. Families come together. Shoppers go into a shopping frenzy. Kids await the day they’ll receive their presents.

There is no other time quite like it, maybe that’s why for most people it’s the most wonderful time of the year.

The attachment people feel to these days isn’t surprising. After all, these traditions have been going on for hundreds of generations. Consider the following description in the Bible:

“For one cutteth a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the axe. They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not” (Jer. 10:3-4)

. That description, clearly describing a Christmas tree, recorded hundreds of years before the birth of Christ.

Most people simply follow the customs of their family, region or nation without knowing where those customs originated or why they are kept. Most never ask about the origins of Christmas, why people exchange presents on this day, or even whether this holiday really represents the birth of Jesus Christ, after whom it is named!

What does God think of Christmas? Does the Almighty God command its observance? If not, does He forbid that we partake in it?

I’m curious to hear your opinion in the comment field below.
