Dear loved ones,
As you well know, we are getting closer to my birthday. Every year
there is a celebration in my honor and I think that this year
celebration will be repeated. During this time there are many
shopping for gifts, there are many radio announcements, TV
commercials, and in every part of the world everyone is talking
my birthday is getting closer and closer.
It is really very nice to know, that at least once a year, some people
think of me. As you know, the celebration of my birthday began
years ago. At first people seemed to understand and be thankful
that I did for them, but in these times, no one seems to know
reason for the celebration. Family and friends get together and
lot of fun, but they don't know the meaning of the celebration.
Remember that last year there was a great feast in my honor. The
dinner table was full of delicious foods, pastries, fruits,
nuts and chocolates. The decorations were exquisite and there
many, many beautifully wrapped gifts. But, do you want to know
something? I wasn't invited. I was the guest of honor and they
remember to send me an invitation. The party was for me, but
great day came, I was left outside, they closed the door in my
face and I wanted to be with them and share their table.
In truth, that didn't surprise me because in the last few years all
close their doors to me. Since I wasn't invited, I decided to
the party without making any noise. I went in and stood in a
They were all drinking; there were some who were drunk and
jokes and laughing at everything. They were having a grand time.
top it all, this big man all dressed in red wearing a long white
entered the room yelling Ho-Ho-Ho! He seemed drunk. He sat on
and all the children ran to him, saying: "Santa Claus, Santa
as if the party were in his honor!
At 12 Midnight all the people began to hug each other; I extended my
arms waiting for someone to hug me and ... do you know ... no
hugged me. Suddenly they all began to share gifts. They opened
one by one with great expectation. When all had been opened, I
to see if, maybe, there was one for me.
What would you feel if on your birthday everybody shared gifts
did not get one? I then understood that I was unwanted at that
and quietly left.
Every year it gets worse. People only remember to eat and drink,
gifts, the parties and nobody remembers me. I would like this
Christmas, that you allow me to enter into your life. I would
you recognize the fact that almost two thousand years ago I came
this world to give my life for you, on the cross, to save you.
I only want that you believe this with all your heart.
I want to share something with you. As many didn't invite me to
party, I will have my own celebration, a grandiose party that no
has ever imagined, a spectacular party.
I'm still making the final arrangements. Today I am sending out
invitations and there is an invitation for you. I want to know
wish to attend and I will make a reservation for you and write
name with golden letters in my great guest book. Only those on
guest list will be invited to the party. Those who don't answer
invite, will be left outside.
Be prepared because when all is ready you will be part of my
