The Real Significance of Christmas

"This interesting day, crowned with the history of Truth's idea, —its earthly advent and nativity,—is especially dear to the heart of Christian Scientists; to whom Christ's appearing in a fuller sense is so precious, and fraught with divine benedictions for mankind."

As I pondered these words of Mrs. Eddy in her article entitled "Christmas" found in "Miscellaneous Writings" (p. 120), I was reminded of how much more spiritually significant Christmas is to me now than it was before I became a student of Christian Science. This fuller sense of Christmas has appeared to students of this religion the world over. They are glimpsing something of the same light which, nearly two thousand years ago, shone from the Bethlehem star and guided the Wisemen to where the young child lay.
