Ground Zero for the Christmas season is Christmas Day.
Which means Ground Zero for the 2022 Christmas season is Christmas Day 2022.
As a day becomes the focal point of an entire holiday season, it naturally picks up some myths and legends along the way. And so it has been with Christmas Day 2022.
Let’s deal with a few of those less-than-truthful hangers-on NOW, shall we?
1- Christmas is a day which reflects the type of people we are at present.
This may be true, but it is NOT that the day reflects the type of people we are.
It is more likely that the day reflects the type of people WE HAVE BECOME. A look back at Christmases past and a person will have a fairly good idea of where the ‘people’ referred to ONCE WERE.
Christmas is more an imperfect reflecting tool rather than a mirror.
Yes, a people can be seen by looking at Christmas past BUT who the people are and where those people once were is a subject which needs CONTEXT in order for the information gained to be of much use.
2- Christmas is a day which softens the hard hearts of all which it touches.
Christmas does appear to soften hardened hearts.
But rather than any form of spell which Christmas mysteriously casts on those who are nearby, it may be that any softening of men is due to the EXPECTATION that men will be merry and bright at Christmas.
Men EXPECT that others will be easier to deal with around the Christmas holidays–and so, they are.
HOWEVER, any easing of hardened hearts may have more to do with WHAT IS EXPECTED OF MEN AT THAT TIME OF YEAR rather than the time of the year itself.
3- Christmas 2022 seems more in keeping with the Christmases of the RECENT past rather than the Christmases of the long ago past.
Whereas the Christmases of the LONG AGO PAST featured a day which emphasized SELFLESSNESS and Good Will towards Men, the Christmases of the RECENT PAST appear to emphasize that which modern man has come to focus on: SELF and SELF-GRATIFICATION.
This has to do mainly with the focus of modern man in general during the end times.
These are the thoughts which have been churned up by Christmas 2022.
Did the reader have any unique thoughts on Christmas Day?
It is not YET too late–although time is surely running out: there is still a LITTLE time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.

DOES the reader believe he is NOT saved?
THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST
“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
—1 Corinthians 15:1-8
“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
