To the editor,

The real gift of Christmas is Jesus Christ. God’s spirit came down, descended on the Virgin Mary, Jesus was conceived and born in the town of Bethlehem. We celebrate His Birthday on Christmas Day. We give gifts out of tradition but God gave the greatest gift of all, His only Begotten Son. A free gift, just for the asking. He was a perfect man that sacrificed Himself for all of our sins. Believe in Jesus and you shall not parish but have everlasting life. He is the gift and the giver, behold the

Lamb of God I whom took away all the sins of the world. He paid the price for all. All we have to do is look up to God, repent and accept His Son. We are not perfect but we are perfectly forgiven. The perfect gift.

Tis’ the season for giving. You will be blessed! Have a Merry Christmas to you and yours, along with a blessed and prosperous New Year!
