Getting Ready for Christmas
It’s the largest celebration around the world each year. Other holidays get a single day, but Christmas is emphasized for an entire month one twelfth of every year, and in our country it starts when September comes.
During the Christmas season, billions of people set aside their normal routines to decorate their homes, send out greeting cards (which I still love to receive) or E-mail messages, buy gifts, go to Christmas parties, attend Church services, sing Christmas songs, watch Christmas TV specials, and travel long distances to be with their families. Christmas sights and sounds fill the air everywhere. There are stores, bazaars, and even careers that are exclusively dedicated to preparing for and celebrating this holiday. When Christmas comes, you can’t miss it. It’s everywhere.

While he was standing in the crowd, suddenly Jesus approached John to be baptized by him. John tried to prevent him saying, “I need to be baptized by You, and yet you are coming to me?” Jesus said to him in reply, “Allow it now, for it is fitting for us to fulfill all righteousness.”
