What is this time of the year all about anyway?

It seems like every Christmas season there the one thing a lot of people are focused on.  People are excited about it.  They are talking to their friends about it.  They can’t sleep because of it.  They ask questions and talk to strangers about it.  They are fanatic about their passion for it.  You know what I’m talking about. Cabbage Patch cabbage_patchkids was IT one year.


Pushing, shoving, yelling, midnight phone calls.  It was crazy.  Another year it was the infamous Tickle Me Elmo.  People would pay almost any amount of money for one.  This year, you can buy them at Big Lots.  This year it is Wii-whatever.  Maybe it’s the Wii Fit you’ve been searching for.


Trying to fill that heart shaped space in your chest.  You’ve probably driven to multiple chopping centers.  Gotten up early to get to a 24X7 Walmart to see if they got a shipment in.

We are a sorry lot.  I can’t imagine what the world would be like if we got as excited about Christ as we have about Cabbage Patch Kids, Tickle Me Elmos and Wii Fits.

How about you.  What are you excited about this CHRISTmas?
