A great series of posts from Andy on Christmas this year:
The Spirit(s) of Christmas
The Spirit of Christmas Past - Christmas Presents
The Spirit of Christmas Present - God's Present
The Spirit of Christmas Future - Christmas Presence
Pretty sure Vernon Kay didn't come up with the phrase "Jesus is the reason for the season" but I do think if we can grasp, and act like we've grasped, the idea of presence rather than presents, or even presence AND presents then we will truely be able to Celebrate Christmas.
