Christmas - God became a man

In every part of the world Christmas is celebrated with gifts, food, visits and songs. They speak of the Virgin Mary, the Christ child, the shepherds, the wisemen and so many other things, but what is the true reason we can celebrate?
For me, celebrating Christmas is celebrating Christ. Christmas is remembering that God became a man and lived with us as a man but without sin. The gifts, the new clothes, the special fool, the family visits and the Christmas songs are all pretty and fine; but they are the way we celebrate, not the reason for the celebration. The true reason to celebrate is that on this day we remember that the son of God came to serve us all and to give His life to redeem ours.
