What’s the big deal about Christmas? Why does the majority of the planet erupt with words like “Rejoice” and “Hallelujah” over the birth of a peasant boy in a remote corner of the Middle East? Don’t get me wrong. I like the gifts and the fun of it all, but isn’t it all just a bit much? We don’t make nearly so big a deal out of other historical figures, and many of them were far more “important” when they were alive than this guy Jesus was.
Unless there’s something uniquely significant about him being born.
