The True Meaning Of Christmas

Charlie Brown: Isn’t there anyone, who knows what Christmas is all about?!

Linus: Sure Charlie Brown, I can tell you what Christmas is all about. Lights please?

And there were in the same country shepherds, abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them! And they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, “Fear not! For, behold, I bring you tidings o great joy, which shall be to all my people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ, the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you: Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.” And suddenly, there was with the angel a multitude of the Heavenly Host praising God, and saying, “Glory to God in the Highest, and on Earth peace, and good will toward men.

That’s what Christmas is all about, Charlie Brown.”

Frohe Weihnachten und schöne Festtage.

Ihr mögt es vielleicht nicht mit Religion und Kirche haben oder den Sohn eines Zimmermanns aus Galiläa für eine völlig fiktive Figur halten…. Ich finde nun mal den Gedanken an die Geburt eines Menschen und Religionsstifters tröstlich, dessen Botschaft sich letztendlich in einem einzigen Satz zusammen fassen lässt: HABT EUCH LIEB!
