The true meaning of Christmas is a phrase that began to appear in the mid 19th century when when a shift toward a more secular culture resulted to a natural backlash.

Christians began to see secularization of the celebration day of the birth of Christ Jesus as the shift toward Santa Claus and gift exchanging replaced the celebration of the Advent of Christ and giving to the needy and poor without the expectation of receiving anything in return.

The poem a visit from St Nicholas in 1822 helped popularize the tradition of exchanging gifts and seasonal Christmas shopping began to assume economic importance.

The day when Messiah was born is an important day to all christians around the world because that's when the Saviour Christ Jesus was born. Other religions don't celebrate the day but the festive is usually felt across the world more than any other festive season.

Merry Christmas to all and a happy new year.
