Christmas - Celebration No Longer a Religious or a Family Close your eyes and try to imagine this the streets of Sarpsborg the last days before Christmas last year Does it look like people are calm happy waiting for the festival when we celebrate the birth of Jesus Can you see any signs of this reason why we celebrate Christmas in the shops in the streets of Sarpsborg After taking a really good look maybe youll discover a small stable in one corner of the marketplace Inside there are a few sheep hay a manger some funny-looking people dressed up like Joseph Mary and the three wise men Here you can rest and think of why we celebrate Christmas Finally a place which gives you the right associations to Christmas But does the stable have many visitors No rather few It looks like people no longer care about the reason for celebrating Christmas The most important for them is to get a holiday to buy a lot of presents to family and friends and eat a lot of good food Where is Jesus among all this The time before Christmas is a very busy time especially because all people have to buy gifts to each other This is a rather new idea when we look at history to give each other presents at Christmas But its nice The question is if the gifts are taking over and dominating the whole celebration The only thing children of today associate with Christmas is all the gifts 50 years ago children associated to go to church have a good meal when coming home maybe get a new knitted sweater and sit by the Christmas tree listening to their father reading the gospel of Christmas As mentioned the situation today is totally different It seems like the presents are more important than the actual reason for celebrating Christmas Just try to imagine how calm the Christmas preparations
