There are some who find the Christmas season depressing, but this need not be.
True Christmas is a spiritual experience that happens on a metaphysical level. It’s about knowing the peace of God that comes to us through Christ. Everyone is equally worthy and able to find the joy that comes from knowing this peace.
Mary Baker Eddy wrote, “The basis of Christmas is the rock, Christ Jesus; its fruits are inspiration and spiritual understanding of joy and rejoicing, — not because of tradition, usage, or corporeal pleasures, but because of fundamental and demonstrable truth, because of the heaven within us” (Miscellany, p. 260).
Everyone has heaven within to feel and know. When it is sought through spiritual sense, it is found, and its discovery reaps the fruits of inspiration and understanding that Eddy points out.
There isn’t anything depressing about Christmas. It’s spiritual meaning is a cause for great rejoicing!
Celebrating true Christmas brings joy.
