This is #a response #to the one-word prompt “Cherish” by “The Daily Post.”
For Christians, Chrismas is the #time to celebrate the birth of humanity’s savior Jesus Christ, but even for the non-Christian, it is an important time of year. Christmas for everyone is a very special moment of each year that deserves to be cherished. For Christmas is all about hope; hope for the coming new year, hope for an end/lessening of one’s troubles, and just plain hope for whatever hope is needed for.
With that hope that we have come to associate and #cherish with Christmas comes a much needed reminded of perspectives in life; of what is truly and really important to ourselves and our communities. Christmas for a brief time takes away all our troubles and problems from our minds and removes differences, hates, and reveries between peoples as well.
There is a great example of such from World War I, called the “Christmas Truce” where during the Christmas of the first year I believe, the common soldiers on the western front on both sides stopped fighting and exchanged gifts and such. Sadly this “truce” did not last, but the fact that it happened at all is indeed something to cherish. Chrismas does not just bring hope, it brings us as humans altogether by reminding us of what we all have in common instead of what we do not; that truly is something to Cherish! Merry Christmas to all!
