          It really is a festival for everybody.

          When it comes to places, areas, or community where it is not an actual celebration or festival,
          it is just a happy time...minus the spiritual elements.

          I enjoyed it and I still do, but I somehow decided not to get indulged in it...unless there is a deeper reason, maybe someone or some people.

          I remember wearing something green with some red, and someone mentioned that I looked like Santa's Helper because of the color combination...and so I don't wear...don't want to be associated with it.

          By the way, I noticed that previously, there were Orange Hearts and Blue Hearts...but now, it is Green Hearts and Orange Hearts.

          Blessings to you...and even though one may not be celebrating, one could experience it through reading or even listening other's tale/experience (including yours).

            THANKS J44 FOR A VERY OBJECTIVE REPLY ! There is a PARADOX about CHRIST ~ MASS basically it should *Always be about the BOY* JESUS the Incarnate SON of GOD ! Without the INCARNATION ~ Jesus becomeing MAN born of the Virgin Mary there would be NO CHRISTMAS. December 25th in ZERO AD was not his actual BIRTHDAY but it is HIS OFFICIAL BIRTHDAY recognised by the Catholic & other Churches. In the UK its is still (THANK GOD) CHRISTMAS or XMAS in the UK and not the MEANI|NGLESS *HAPPY HOLIDAY* as used in the USA. We get Christmas Cards from Jewish & Muslim Friends and card holding Atheists because as you say ~ It really is a Festival for EVERYBODY. If you want to know just how important that is LOOK at any UK coin minted this YEAR it is dated 2019 (AD understood) AD = Anno Domini = In the Year of our Lord ~ indicating that JESUS was born in Bethlehem 2019 years ago. dates before that (as you know) are BC = Before Christ. Angela & I believe HE is the Son of God and represents the HUMAN RACE in Heaven where He now is. As to the DEITY of CHRIST ~ You have to make your own mind up ~ OK. That is the Significance and Sole Reason of CHRISTMAS for US ! That us why we go round the Houses with our Choir ~ Into the Shops and Into the Pub and not JUST THE CHURCH because the Message of the Incarnation is for The Whole World irrespective of COUNTRY ~ CLASS ~ COLOUR or CREED ~ AMEN !

            Blessings & Peace & Joy to YOU & YOURS
            Love @ Christmas & All through the Year

            The significance of the HEARTS and their colours !
            I was origionally on the site (2011) as Briansodes
            When ANGELA Joined me it became BRAN & ANGELA
            and WE posted PINK HEARTS for Angela to say she
            *LOVED* YOU and BLUE ones for ME. When I posted
            todays POEM the song spoke about RED & GREEN so
            Angela was happy for me to leave the PINK ones on
            for HER (in absentia) and I replaced my BLUE ones
            with GREEN to be SEASONAL ~ OK !

              Thank you so much for the explanation.
              It was and still is...very compelling.

              Truth be told, when you said 'DEITY of CHRIST ' and making up my own mind about it,
              all I have to say is that I agree with everything you said and...a strange feeling that I strongly agree with what you do and with what you believe in.

              Agree as in...truly acknowledge and no disagreement at all with that.
              Maybe that's why no matter what your poems are about or what you're telling through the poems, I honestly tend to read them even if nobody asked me to.

              Let's just say that I personally feel that you're someone worth to look up to.

              Christmas is going to be very different for me this year, not very joyous at all.
              Good write though Brian.

              • ANGELA & BRIAN

                THANKS UNCLE ANDY ~ We are with you & Joyce through PRAYER. We were apart last CHRISTMAS (11,500 miles) but we knew that this CHRISTMAS we would be Together Again. Your first Christmas without Joyce will as you say be *Not very joyous at all* We trust all your MPS Friends will be of some comfort !

                Blessings & Peace to YOU & YOUR Beloved JOYCE
                Love to you BOTH ~ BRIAN ~ πŸ§‘πŸ’šπŸ§‘πŸ’šπŸ§‘πŸ’šπŸ§‘

                Hi A & B

                Nice write up about chirstmas. I dont know more than about the celebration. But your lines sparkled about something.

                • ANGELA & BRIAN

                  GOOD MORNING ~ THANKS FOR YOUR COMMENT SINDHUJA ! Basically we believe that OUR GOD ~ JEHOVAH sent his SON ~ JESUS (SAVIOUR) form Heaven down to EARTH to be born as a BABY in Bethlehem (Israel) over 2000 Years ago ! Beacause the HUMAN RACE was very sinful GOD wanted to REDEEM the Human Race ~ ONCE & FOR ALL ! JESUS who was DIVINE & SINLESS grew up to be a MAN and in AD 33 the Romans crucified HIM on a CROSS in JERUSALEM ! We celebrate HIS BIRTH at CHRISTMAS (The Feast of Christ) on 25th December all over the World and HIS death @ EASTER in MARCH / APRIL. You can read all about it in OUR HOLY BOOK the BIBLE in the New Testament !

                  JESUS DIED ~ that we might be forgiven
                  HE died to make us GODD
                  That we might gio at last to HEAVEN (PARADISE)
                  Saved by HIS PRECIOU BLOOD ~ AMEN

                  Blesings * Peace & Joy
                  Yours BRIAN πŸ§‘πŸ’šπŸ§‘πŸ’šπŸ§‘
                  Red & Green are the COLOURS of CRISTMAS
                  There is also a FUSION called *WHAT IS CHRISTMAS*
                  Yiu have to click on DEVELOPING to see it ~ OK !
