December 25: In the mind of a child

December 10, 2009

A few children were asked what is to celebrate this coming December 25th.

“It’s Jesus’ birthday,” a child of a Catholic answered.

An 8-year old kid, raised in a Born Again Christian family, happily sang, “We wish you a Merry Christmas, we wish you a Merry Christmas, we wish you a Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year” as her response.

“Exchange gifts! I receive a lot of gifts on that day from my Mom and Dad, my brothers and sisters, my grandma and grandpa, and my friends,” exclaimed a 10-year old girl whose parents are Baptists.

All others born of parents from Adventist, Church of Christ, and even from religions that do not believe in Christmas, expressed one common answer – it’s Christmas Day.  They all believe it is Jesus’ birthday.  But an 11-year old Sam knows no idea about Christmas on December 25, rather a more festive celebration.

“It’s our International Thanksgiving to God.  It is the most joyful and worthy celebration one should celebrate. Our family will be in Apalit for three days to thank God for His kindness and for keeping us safe always. I am excited to sing our song of praise to God with the other kids in the Church,” Sam excitedly announced as she brought in mind the events to happen on December 25-27. Sam is a member of the Kawan ng Cordero (KNC), the children’s organization of the Members Church of God International (MCGI).

“I will invite my friends to come and celebrate with us,” she added.
