Christmas is a time for miracles.It is also a time when the dull things of daily life and the forecast of human hature gives way to a spiritual awakening.Allow me to share with you one truly wonder of Christmas.
Our miracle story comes from an incident that occurred in Flanders， Belgium， at the dawn of World War I. On December 24th ，1914， German and English troops faced each other from the relative safety of their ditches across which no man's land lying between them. Suddenly， the silence was broken， not by gunfire， but by the strains of Silent Night arising from the German position. It wasn't long before the English troops responded with a Yuletide hymn of their own. Then an amazing sight surprised the eyes of the English soldiers. A German soldier holding a small tree arranged with lighted candles began to walk across the land toward the English lines. This miraculous scene occasioned the declaration of a truce followed by English and German troops greeting one another， exchanging small gifts and singing songs of Christmas. Word of this incredible phenomenon reached the High Command of both sides.
On Christmas Day， both armies moved from their positions to engage in the killing of war at other battlefields. However， on Christmas Eve 1914 on a field in Flanders， there was Peace on Earth.
Christmas is a truly amazing phenomenon. The day and season perpetuate a miraculous， historical event as an annual presence that challenges an often rough， cruel， and egotistical creature -- the human being -- to become open and amenable to their Creator's vision. The great miracle of Christmas continues in the performance of humane acts， moral honesty， and in the spiritual awareness of millions struggling to lead a life of grace.
Christmas Day falls on the twenty-fifth of December. It is a very happy day for many boys and girls. Before the term ends in some schools， the children act a nativity or “birth” play， showing how Jesus was born in a stable.
On the twenty-fourth of December， all children are very excited. Usually they are sent to bed early so that their parents can get the presents ready. The younger children think that Father Christmas will come down the chimney or fireplace， so they hang up a sock for him to put presents in. The greedy ones even hang up a pillow-case or a sack to try to get more presents. Later that night， father or mother will put presents in the sock， and leave others at the side of the bed.
On Christmas morning， the children wake up very early. Some even turn on the light at two o‘clock， and most of them are awake by six o’clock， and the young ones play while the dinner is prepared. At about one o‘clock in the afternoon， the Christmas dinner is brought in. The turkey or chicken is quickly eaten. Children search in their Christmas pudding for new coins which are hidden in it. The rest of the day is full of games and eating until the happiest of all Christmas hollidays comes to an end.
Mary was engaged to be married to Joseph, a carpenter, but before they came together, she was found to be with child.
Christmas Day-December 25-which celebrates the birth of Jesus Christ, the founder of the Christian religion, is the biggest and best-loved holiday in the Christian World.
According to the Bible, the holy book of Christians, God decided to allow his only son, Jesus Christ, to be born to a human mother and live on earth so that people could understand God better and learn to love God and each other more. "Christmas"- meaning "celebration of Christ "- honors the time when Jesus was born to a young Jewish woman Mary.
Mary was engaged to be married to Joseph, a carpenter, but before they came together, she was found to be with child. Because Joseph, her husband, was a righteous man and did not want to expose her to public disgrace, he had in mind to divorce her quietly.
But after he had considered this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, "Do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins."
Although the exact date of the birth of Jesus nearly 2,000 years ago is not known, the calendar on the supposed date divides all time into B.C. (Before Christ )and A.D. ( a Latin phrase, Anno Domini, "in the year of our Lord.") For the first 300 years, Jesus' birthday was celebrated on different dates. Finally, in the year 354, church leaders chose December 25 as his birthday.
