Christmas In Bad Times


- Advertisment -spot_img

This is our last issue for the year as we give everyone involved in the making of the MetroPost a well-deserved break from the past 51 Sundays.

The year 2022 has been a good year for some. For others, the year just went by without any significant happening. Perhaps still single and searching, getting caught in a debt trap, or desperately in need of a job.

Whatever situation people are in, Christmas should make us stop and ponder on the true meaning of this internationally-celebrated Christian holiday.

For Christians, Christmas is about the birth of Jesus Christ, our Savior and Redeemer. He was God’s gift to mankind so we may all be saved. That could best explain what started the tradition of gift-giving at Christmas time.

We will be celebrating Christmas with a lot of gloomy news—high gas prices, a high inflation rate, never-ending squabbles in the Dumaguete City Council (whatever the cause), bearish economic prospects in 2023, and the ongoing war in Ukraine and Russia, which people use to explain why prices of electricity are still poised to increase next year.

But whatever saddens you today, you can always realize that it could’ve been worse.

The best part is that we are alive to celebrate Christmas this year so let’s do what we can to make Christmas meaningful, not only for us but for those around us.

They used to say Christmas is just for children. No, Christmas is for everyone. It’s for the child in all of us.
