Make Christmas Meaningful

Corey —  November 26, 2010

       What if Christmas meant more than shopping in packed malls?

       What if you spent more time with your family than you spent trying to pick out gifts?

       What if you could wake up on December 26th with no debts from the day before?

       What if you could throw out all the stress, traffic, and shopping and just focus on worshiping Jesus, giving to the needy, and loving all people?

       What if we gave up Consumermas and went back to Christmas?

       The folks at Advent Conspiracy have a great little video (2 minutes and 39 seconds) about a meaningful Christmas.

       And here’s the promo video from 2009:

       So why not make Christmas meaningful again? Why not do it this year? If you want to change how you celebrate Christmas, here are some good resources:

       How will you make Christmas meaningful this year? Let me know in the comments!

  1. “Consumermas” is exactly right. I think these guys are on to something. The video is geared toward Christians, but I think it’s relevant to all Americans (of course, it’s often best to start with the Church as we should be first setting an example). Thanks for sharing this.

  2. You’re welcome, Josh. I thought the same thing when I first saw it. I’ve had problems with the way we celebrate Christmas for a while. I think they offer a great way to redirect all the effort we put into the season toward something that would be more Christ-honoring than what we normally do. Thanks for commenting!
