Christ in Christmas
- Published: Tuesday, 06 December 2016 14:35
Christians everywhere are excited to celebrate the birth of our Saviour, Jesus Christ. In South Africa, the backdrop to the season is the prospect of a summer holiday and creating special memories with friends and family.
Most of us will probably navigate heavy traffic, endure sweltering heat, experience long shopping queues, witness tearful tots and even an impassioned exchange or two. All this, as we listen to our favourite Christmas carols. Many of us will host family members visiting from other cities and live in cramped spaces. When the initial excitement wanes, what then? It sometimes feels like the season to be merry is anything but.
