QUESTION OF THE WEEK:
“Do our children know the REAL meaning of Christmas? Why or why not?
“No. No one has taught them the true meaning of Christmas. In their minds, it is all about receiving gifts; to them (children) the true meaning IS ‘giving gifts.’”
“No. Children today don’t know the real meaing of Christmas. Back in the day, we were brought up by our parents, grandparents and the neighborhood. They taught us the real meaning of Christmas: Jesus is the reason for the season.”
“No. Christmas has become too commercialized. The kids today think Christmas is all about receiving gifts. They have for- gotten the true meaning (of the season) is the birth of Christ.”
“No. It seems like our younger generation has forgotten the true meaning of Christmas because they are not being taught the way our parents taught us. The values (of today’s youth) are just not the same, and it’s sad. Our children are supposed to be our future.”
