So the bible tells us it was in the place where the animals slept that the Son of God was born. It was the first Christmas and the beginning of a great and merry tradition around the world. But—come to think of it—it was all but a scene of littleness, simplicity and humility.

On reflection, the meaning of Christmas is for the people to see, appreciate and enjoy the little and simple things in life, to be humble, and to spend more on helping others and on gifts or activities that promote health, peace of mind, love and responsibility.
