“The Purpose of Christmas”

I can’t believe the day is finally here! Christmas is my favorite time of the year.  I enjoy the holiday decorations, the Christmas carols, and even the hustle & bustle of buying cards/gifts for loved ones.  But last year, I developed an even stronger love for Christmas after reading a powerful, little book:  “The Purpose of Christmas” by Rick Warren.  He’s the same author of the New York Times Bestseller, “The Purpose Driven Life.”  My favorite excerpt is on page 13: “Christmas is a party. Specifically, it’s a birthday party – for Jesus – and birthdays are meant to be celebrated. It’s why we say, ‘Merry Christmas!’” Well, I love birthdays and I’m making sure Jesus gets the best party ever!! :)

There is so much more insight and explanation in the 120 or so pages.  No matter what your spiritual background, you will take away something from “The Purpose of Christmas.”  If you have some time during the holiday, read this book. You will never view Christmas in the same way again…
