Nativity Celebration

Although the Bible says nothing about celebrating Christmas, it also does not forbid it. But we also know that Jesus Christ, "You are Peter and upon this rock I will build My Church." He also told the Apostles that what they bind on earth is bound in heaven.

The exact date of Christmas is not important. What is important is our attitude. If we celebrate the birthday of a loved one, why should we not celebrate the Birth of Christ? By celebrating we also acknowledge His humanity.

The Church selected a specific date to celebrate the Birth of Christ.  She did this for our benefit.  But to receive full benefits, one needs to attend the services and to observe the fast before the feast.
