And how can you choose a Christmas gift that expresses that meaning to someone you love?

The phrase “the true meaning of Christmas” has been used for many years, and people continue to search for that “meaning” every year. Many people think the more money you spend, the more “Christmas spirit” you have. Some people think it’s about giving from the heart, and they are probably closer to the real definition.

Charlie Brown searched painstakingly for the true spirit of Christmas, and the Grinch thought he stole Christmas when indeed he learned that no one can steal the “spirit” of the sacred day of the Nativity.

An early expression of this sentiment using the phrase of "the true meaning" is found in The American magazine, vol. 28 (1889): "…to give up one's very self — to think only of others — how to bring the greatest happiness to others — that is the true meaning of Christmas"


The Choice of a Christmas Gift

The choice of a Christmas gift is a very personal decision, and for those who feel so moved, JR Jewelers offers a line of religious jewelry to remind us that the first part of the word Christmas is “Christ.”

We are proud to offer an inspirational selection of religious pendants, crosses, and necklaces in a wide range of styles. Yellow gold, white gold, and sterling with pearls, diamonds, or other gemstones at prices that range from very modest to expensive.

Truly, a gift with religious significance will not only inspire and remind your loved one of the true meaning of Christmas, but it will be cherished for many years. Many people wear the religious jewelry once owned by their mothers, fathers, grandparents, or great-grandparents. What a magnificent way to show you care about the reason for the season.
