When I was a kid, every Christmas I had to write a letter to baby Jesus. I had to confess my sins to obtain gifts. Quite a nice bargain.
I never believed in Santa Klaus, so when the teacher told us Santa is a fairy tale I did not care.
Then I stopped believing in baby Jesus bringing gifts – it happened, I do not remember how.
I started to ask my parents for gifts and I happily celebrated Christmas because of winter holidays!
After teenager time, I got somehow a faith boost and I started to celebrate Christmas because Jesus-was-born-to-dye-later-for-all-of-us, saving humanity for the Eternity.
Maybe I just grew old, and the fairy tale of Jesus dying for us became barely believable. Somehow I started to believe more in “The Green Planet” version about Jesus than what the Evangelists wrote.
As I do not care about shopping and if it was for me all shops could close from the 1st of December to the 7th of January, I wonder why should I celebrate Christmas this year?
