Nyaah! The  bright lights welcome the city as we celebrate the annual festival of lights and music during December 15, 2012. The lights continue to shine brightly the city up until the Patron Festival this coming January. Lanterns are seen and Christmas songs are heard all over the world indeed when this season came. Happy faces are painted the earth. Parties and gatherings are everywhere across the city proper. Churches are always full every mass. Simbang-gabi is also practiced by most. The city plaza were all so busy during that days. These happenings are usually observed as the Christmas season came by.

But did we really think of what Christmas is all about?

For some children its gift-giving, for workers its about Christmas bonus, for someone separated with their family, its reunion.

But what if there’s no gifts to receive for poor children, no salary for unemployed and no members of families reunited?

Not all are usually blessed this season but we all know its the day we celebrate…..

For its about the birth of our savior Jesus Christ and I,m always blessed to share this special day with Him. His birth should remind us of new hope, new love, new beginnings and new life for us as we take steps to the new year of our lives. That for every downfall, it takes ten courage to stand up. For every heartaches, millions will share the love. For every war, many will share peace… That is the true meaning of Christmas….Always remember our Lord. The day is for Him…:-)

Illustrates Jesus’ description of himself “I am the Good Shepherd” (from the Gospel of John, chapter 10, verse 11). This version of the image shows the detail of his face. The memorial window is also captioned: “To the Glory of God and in Loving Memory of William Wright. Died 6th November, 1932. Aged 70 Yrs.” (Photo credit: Wikipedia)
