What does Christmas mean to the world? I see it as a time where all mankind irrespective of religion or spirituality can think of and focus on LOVE. It is a time that belongs to all of us. It reminds us of the love towards the baby Jesus. It reminds us of the love of the child towards Santa Claus; and the love of Santa Claus towards all the world’s children. It reminds us of the love engendered by the Buddha and represented by Krisna. It reminds us of the great love represented by the Great Spirit of the First Nation people of the Americas. It reminds us of the connection and great love the Australian Aboriginal people have for the land and thus all creation. It reminds us of the love that Islam encourages showing affection and love towards each other all the time. It is a time where we see the love in our families and friends and in our neighbours. Therefore I see the symbols of Santa and the tree as representing that Love that is within each of us. This love is a consciousness with in each of us. Blessings to All.
