A Letter for Christmas

This is a chain mail I received 3 years ago, and I've kept because I've liked it so much. I just wanted to share it also with you:

It's worth reading. I promise.

Dear All,

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
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

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
and there were many, many beautifully wrapped gifts.

However, do you want to know something? I was not invited.

I was the guest of honor and they didn't remember to send me an

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

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 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,
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 the gifts, the parties,
to eat and drink, 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

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

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!
