Today is Christmas day. And it does not really matter whether Jesus Christ was actually born today or not. That is to say, chronological accuracy has nothing to do with today's celebration. The fact is that a Grand Genius (Jesus Christ) had been born. Who preached the truth (the undiluted word of God). Guess what? the summary of his message was true love. And by the virtue of his message the world has become better. Oh! yes, Jesus Christ is the reason for this season. Thus, as we commemorate his birth. May we spread the peace, hope and true love that his birth brought to humanity. Merry Christmas. ~Emeasoba George
