Christmas is a holy event. It is the time when Jesus was born on the face of the earth. There are various stories, myths and legends are widespread in the air. Most of them have a true ancient origin in particular. No one can even define the exact origin of most of the myths and sayings. Christmas sayings are some phrases that are used to make a guideline of activities based on mostly Christmas theme.
Likewise most of other sayings popular among different cultures, Christmas sayings have positive as well as negative sides. Many of the sayings are really worthy and helpful to draw a guideline for human behavior and attitude, while some others may not serve the purpose in a positive fashion at all. This article tries to explore different common Christmas sayings and their underlying meaning.
Inspirational Christmas Sayings
Good Christmas sayings are those which in particular offer people some values and also help them to pick up good things in life. Additionally, good Christmas sayings also carry gentle and kind messages that play true inspirational role. These types of Christmas sayings particularly express the love of God for his messenger and fellow people. For example, when the saying says that ‘be good for goodness sake’, it puts emphasis on the goodness of a being and also inspires to be good and to stay with goodness. It is indeed one of the good Christmas sayings. If we consider the Christmas sayings by Charles Dickenson, which says about the honoring of Christmas within the heart and keep it intact throughout the years, it explains the deepest wisdom of kindness and beauty of Christmas that can be only felt by heart, not on a particular day basis.
Likewise any other sayings, Christmas sayings are not free from bias. Most of them are not at all based on any scientific norms. These types of Christmas sayings do not necessarily promote any specific inspiration as well. Say, for example, when the sayings say about eating any particular food on Christmas Eve just to avoid loosing friend, it simply provides nothing but false hope. To keep a friend within a continuing relation does not necessarily need only to eat plum pudding on a particular day, but it needs proper activity, sensitiveness, mutual interest and respect in the relation. So it cannot be as worthy as the inspirational ones.
