God is always with us

The Christmas season is one of the most celebrated times of the year. Immediately after Thanksgiving, the commercialism of Christmas is advertised. Jesus is the real meaning of Christmas and he is the reason for the season. This is a time when we celebrate Christ our Savior's birth.
