We learn, if we are wise, that we give of ourselves, give our love for others. We also, like the shepherds in the fields and their people, anticipate His coming, and sing out with joy as the angles did, when we feel his presence among us. So, in life's Nativity play, we at times play the parts of the Shepherds, the Angels, and of our Father. Our tradition of gift-giving, receiving, and rejoicing over the whole thing is the value of the Christmas season.
“He is not here; for He is risen …” Matthew 28:6

We see death and suffering all around, brought on by the plague of our age. Easter, the rebirth phase, is also a part of that cycle and happens because of the Good Friday part.
He is risen!
On TV today, there are a lot of "Christmas" stories about giving, sharing, and compassion. Almost none make any reference to the very person whose virtues we're being taught to emulate in them, namely Jesus.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
