Let us remember that the Christmas heart is a giving heart, a wide open heart that thinks of others first.
The birth of the baby Jesus stands as the most significant event in all history, because it has meant the pouring into a sick world the healing medicine of love which has transformed all manner of hearts for almost two thousand years... Underneath all the bulging bundles is this beating Christmas heart.
Late on a sleepy, star-spangled night,A woman spent all Christmas Day in a telephone box without ringing anyone. If someone comes to phone, she leaves the box, then resumes her place afterwards. No one calls her either, but from a window in the street, someone watched her all day from his home, at last called in the phone box.No doubt The woman take the call & The man wished her "Merry Christmas".Then the woman told him,thanks for wishing,as she has nobody in this world.so she thought of stading near the phone box every year in Christmas Eve For a warmth wishing.nobody noticed her ever.its the 1st time in last 10 years,After Her Family Destroyed in a road accident,she got a call...she was so happy that,she cried. Then she disconnected the line & went home.The Man has Nothing To tell her more,as the woman's statements were very much self explanatory.This is called the Syndrom of Christmas,Which always Needs a warmth heart beside it.
Best of all, Christmas means a spirit of love, a time when the love of God and the love of our fellow men should prevail over all hatred and bitterness, a time when our thoughts and deeds and the spirit of our lives manifest the presence of God.
So "Let us keep Christmas beautiful Without a thought of greed, That it might live forevermore To fill our every need, That it shall not be just a day, But last a lifetime through, The miracle of Christmastime That brings God close to you."
