(© 2014 Kimberly D Miller – Farm in Allegany, Oregon) I have a question for those of you who do not believe in Jesus, and I ask this because I have never understood the practice…why do you celebrate Christmas? It seems that most people really do not understand what Christmas is all about. Has no one watched, “A Charlie Brown Christmas,” recently? For the life of me I will just never understand the need to commercialize this holiday. This is the day we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ and yes, he wants us to give unto one another, but with our hearts and our love. He means for us to love each other the way he does and give of that love freely to others. He meant for us to give kindness and help to those we love and those in need the way he would, not go into debt buying an espresso machine for Aunt Sally. I am guilty of this frame of mind as well because we were brought up getting everything we wanted for Christmas and were never really told of the meaning of the holiday. It
