Justin Bieber - All I Want for Christmas is You

Christmas is a time for love and fun,
A time to reshape souls and roots and skies,
A time to give your heart to everyone
Freely, like a rich and lavish sun,
Like a burning star to those whose lonely sighs
Show need of such a time for love and fun.
For children first, whose pain is never done,
Whose bright white fire of anguish never dies,
It's time to give your heart to every one,
That not one angel fall, to hatred won
For lack of ears to listen to her cries,
Or arms to carry him towards love and fun,
Or friends to care what happens on the run
To adult life, where joy or sadness lies.
Is time to give your heart to everyone,
For God loves all, and turns His back on none,
Good or twisted, ignorant or wise.
Christmas is a time for love and fun,
 A time to give your heart to everyone.

According to “The Truth about Christmas,” an incisive essay on Christmas published in the December 2010 edition of Awake, Christmas celebration has spread to non-Christian countries such as China, Thailand, Nigeria, Tunisia and Turkey.

The article reports that in the West “Christmas is now largely secular and commercial, with many ads blatantly targeted at children.” Millions of Christians still go to church on Christmas day. However, it is the stunning-decorated shopping malls playing Christmas carols that have become the new temples. As a result of relentless commercialization, people are confused and worried over how to buy Christmas gifts for their loved ones. Some of them will borrow money to meet the expectations of family members and friends.
No doubt that Christmas, which is supposed to mark the birthday of Jesus Christ, the most iconic spiritual teacher in human history (according to Christians), has evolved into a celebration of  modern materialism, debauchery and razzmatazz.
But, how did this come about? Is it connected to the largely non-Christian origin of Christmas itself? Was Jesus actually born on Christmas day, that is, 25th of December? What are the historical origins of Christmas?
