I have always thought of Christmas time, when it has come round, as a good time; a kind, forgiving, charitable time; the only time I know of, in the long calendar of the year, when men and women seem by one consent to open their shut-up hearts freely, and to think of people below them as if they really were fellow passengers to the grave, and not another race of creatures bound on other journeys. ~Charles Dickens

Christmas is a necessity. There has to be at least one day of the year to remind us that we're here for something else besides ourselves.
Gifts of time and love are surely the basic ingredients of a truly merry Christmas.
Christmas Is a Time for Giving
Christmas is synonymous with giving, and our model of perfect giving is Jesus. Someone who followed His example well was Mother Teresa. Working among the poor of Calcutta, she inspired millions with her selfless love.
“I see Jesus in every human being,” she said. “I say to myself, ‘This is hungry Jesus, I must feed him. This is sick Jesus. This one has leprosy or gangrene; I must wash him and tend to him. I serve because I love Jesus.’”
Only someone who knows Christ’s love and has responded to it by passing it on could understand what Mother Teresa means.
