Gus and the Meaning of Christmas

Pearl:  Did you hear that?  Was that Santa Claws?

Jaq:  I can't wait to open presents!  Is it time?

Gus:  Guys, guys!  Christmas isn't about Santa Claws and presents.  Christmas is about celebrating the birth of Jesus.  God loved us so much that he sent his only son here to earth.  If that wasn't special enough, God made sure he was born in a manger so animals like us could be there too.  Listen, THIS is what Christmas is about:

Now there were in the same country shepherds living out in the fields, keeping watch over their flock by night. And behold, an angel of the Lord stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were greatly afraid. Then the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people. For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. And this will be the sign to you: You will find a Babe wrapped in swaddling cloths, 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, goodwill toward men!

- Luke 2:8 - 14 (New King James Version)

Merry Christmas to all and may there be peace on earth.
