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 the celebration will be
repeated. During this time there are many people shopping for gifts, there
are many radio announcements, TV commercials, and in every part of the world
everyone is talking that 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 many years ago. At
first people seemed to understand and be thankful of all that I did for
them, but in these times, no one seems to know the reason for the
celebration. Family and friends get together and have a lot of fun, but they
don't know the meaning of the celebration.

I remember that last year there was a great feast in my honor. The dinner
table was full of delicious foods, pastries, fruits, assorted nuts and
chocolates. The decorations were exquisite and there were many, many
beautifully wrapped gifts. But, do you want to know something? I wasn't
invited. I was the guest of honor and they didn't remember to send me an
invitation. The party was for me, but when that 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 enter the party
without making any noise. I went in and stood in a corner. They were all
drinking; there were some who were drunk and telling jokes and laughing at
everything. They were having a grand time. To top it all, this big fat man
all dressed in red wearing a long white beard entered the room yelling
Ho-Ho-Ho! He seemed drunk. He sat on the sofa and all the children ran to
him, saying: "Santa Claus, Santa Claus" .. 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 one hugged me.
Suddenly they all began to share gifts. They opened them one by one with
great expectation. When all had been opened, I looked to see if, maybe,
there was one for me.

What would you feel if on your birthday everybody shared gifts and you did
not get one? I then understood that I was unwanted at that party and quietly
left.

Every year it gets worse. People only remember to eat and drink, the gifts,
the parties and nobody remembers me. I would like this Christmas that you
allow me to enter into your life. I would like that you recognize the fact
that almost two thousand years ago I came to this world to give my life for
you, on the cross, to save you. Today, 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 their party,
I will have my own celebration, a grandiose party that no one has ever
imagined, a spectacular party.

I'm still making the final arrangements. Today I am sending out many
invitations and there is an invitation for you. I want to know if you wish
to attend and I will make a reservation for you and write your name with
golden letters in my great guest book. Only those on the guest list will be
invited to the party. Those who don't answer the invite, will be left
outside.
Be prepared because when all is ready you will be part of my great party.

See you soon.
I Love you!
Jesus
Merry Christmas!! :)
