Star, (Latin: aster) was significant in the birth of Christ, (of which we celebrate on Christmas Day, December 25th, of each year.) The actual month or day of Christ’s birth is not recorded but many events are noted that took place on that special day and time in history.
The Magi, (or ‘Wise Men,’) were told by an Angel, who appeared to them in the desert, to follow a bright star in the east and they would come to the birthplace of the Jewish Messiah. They did as they were advised, and with them, took magnificent gifts for the “King of all Mankind.”
Now you ask, why did these three Persian Magi listen to the words of the Angel, and know of this One of which she spoke? Because Christ’s birth had been both prophesied by the Jewish prophet, Daniel, and the pagan prophet, Balaam. Daniel was chief court seer in the land of Persia, (modern day Iran,) and in Daniel 9:24-27 he gives a timeline for the birth of the Messiah. Balaam was a prophet who in Numbers 24:17 tells of a “Star” coming out of Jacob, (from the east.)

Why do Christians still believe in this celestial phenomenon that is described in Mathew 2:1-12?

1) Because ONLY the Magi were able to see the “Star of Bethlehem” according to biblical passages that tell of His birth.

2) The “Star” led them straight to Bethlehem, resting over the stable where baby Jesus lay in swaddling clothes.

3) Celestial bodies move from east to west ordinarily, but in the case of this brilliant star, it led them south to Bethlehem where Joseph and Mary welcomed the “Son of God.”

Now if the word Star seems not to fit in the story context of Christ’s birth, then, I beg you, what does?

What is believed by the Jews, (who denied Christ as being the Messiah) is that this Star was only a manifestation they refer to as; Shekinah Glory, which literally means: Dwelling of God or Visible presence of the Lord.
The most notable reference to Shekinah can be found in Exodus 3:21. The Shekinah was the pillar of a cloud that led the Isrealites by day, and a pillar of fire that led them by night. The Shekinah fits with visual evidence in Mathew 2:1-2 also. It could appear to an individual or the masses. During Christ’s ministry Shekinah Glory was used frequently, (e.g. Mathew 17:5, Acts 1:9.) to lead people to specific locations.
Should we then be surprised that God used this miraculous sign to lead the three Wise Men to His son’s place of birth? I say, not in the least…
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and mind, and soul, and you shall not question His miracles.

Snowman Waving From the Top of The World My vote is to have Christmas traditions all year round. You see at Christmas time most people at least the ones I have met, always change just a little for the better around Christmas. I do not know whether or not it is the great yuletide Christmas carols, the festive atmosphere everywhere you go, or just some hidden part in all of us that screams out,
You see, somewhere deep down inside we all believe in something better than we now have or see, and most of us feel a lot better when we help someone. Whether the person is in need or not, this feeling is what I call the feeling of Christmas, and we all should strive to feel this way all year long.

The feeling of the Christmas holidays is truly all about family, friends and celebrating all things good.

The Lord's birthday is swiftly coming
Christmas carols we're merrily humming,
Adoration and harmony spreads worldwide
As we eagerly await the happy Yuletide.

Enhance your Christmas, with Christmas poems and stories highlighted with your favorite Christmas carols. Christmas traditions are fast becoming a family way of life.
Poems are a simple way of inspiring others to join in on the Christmas traditions that love and poems bring to this Christmas holiday.
