Imagine a world without Christmas. There will be no kids caroling outside your door. No bright and colorful lanterns. No reason to wake up in the early and attend morning masses for nine straight days. No grocery list and shopping list but a typical normal day on a December. And most of all, no gifts!
There is really something positive rolling up your calendar on the month of December. In fact even months before December, people are starting to count down the days before Christmas. People are agitated not just to celebrate it with merrymaking but also to know what gift they will receive from an important person in their lives.
The true essence of Christmas is more than the monetary value of gifts but the message behind it and the person who gave. Even before the earliest times, people of different customs and traditions are practicing this gesture of gift giving.
Highlighting the event of Jesus’ birth on Bethlehem, Christianity believes that the origin of gift giving on Christmas was attributed to the Three Wise Men who had a journey to visit the manger where Jesus was born. Each of the wise men gave a special gifts which are gold, frankincense and myrrh.
The Philippines is known for having the longest celebration of Christmas in the world. The Filipinos are naturally generous and selfless especially in times of needs. These are specially the times when it is seen that even the less-fortunate people living, have the reason to give and celebrate.
