What is Christmas?

Happy Holidays!There’s a distinct difference in the atmosphere during Christmas season. Especially in the Philippines, where the lack of snow fails to set a proper western concept of a “White Christmas”.

So what is Christmas when you disregard the fact that it’s a Christian tradition celebrating the birth of Christ. What makes Christmas, Christmas? Is it because of the gifts? the decor? the ever present Christmas music? or maybe it’s because Christmas is the only time where the entire family can gather beside the iconic tree, opening presents?

To me Christmas is all of that put together and more, there’s this feeling that just can’t seem to be pinned downed with words in my vocabulary. Perhaps it’s the long suppressed belief of mine that Santa Claus actually exists.

So I ask this question again. What is Christmas?
