Where are You Christmas

Where are you Christmas
Why can’t I find you
Why have you gone away

Living in a big city when I am with the minority religion is quite depressing on days like Christmas. I can’t be with my family for my mom and my dad is visiting my brother in Europe. Well, I don’t mind that. What I have in mind is that I miss spending time with my family and having all our tradition at home again. At least I can go back home and stay in Medan until New Year, but not this year.

My world is changing
I’m rearranging
Does that mean Christmas changes too

Here in Indonesia, we have to celebrate Christmas guarded by police. It is so disturbing and I hate that! I even did not want to go to church because I really hate that! I want to feel the warmth of Christmas, not feel like I was going to be terrorized! If this holiday is for everyone to enjoy, then why should we feel unsafe?

Then I watched “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” on both 1966 and 2000 version. Later on I know, that maybe I have changed, so that I felt Christmas had changed too. Maybe everyone have changed so that they view Christmas as a threat and must be eliminated. Maybe they can’t feel the warmth of family gathering, and getting closer to each other. Maybe they have forgotten how it feels to be with those they loved on special days like Christmas.

If there is love in your heart and your mind
You will feel like Christmas all the time

I feel you Christmas
I know I’ve found you
You never fade away
The joy of Christmas
Stays here inside us
Fills each and every heart with love

Where are you Christmas
Fill your heart with love

We cannot change Christmas. It has been like that since many ways. If we want it to be good, then fill your heart with love. Because you will make things worse when you filled your heart with hatred.

Merry Christmas every one! Merry Christmas because Christmas is for every one!
