Christmas is a celebration of that first Christmas when they, 'welcomed' Jesus into the world. But why did they welcome Him? Moreover, our Christmas carols talk about 'receiving' Him, like "Let earth receive her King." What's that all about? Why do we do this every year? Why is Jesus the central figure at Christmas?
