The Meaning of Christmas

The Meaning of Christmas

Christmas has arrived once again, with all its joy and all its colors. Through the centuries, we have become accustomed to a certain way of celebrating Christmas. The homecoming of friends and relatives, the snow under the windowsill, the gifts beneath the tree, the lights and colors, decorations, lavish Christmas dinner – all these has become an inevitable part of our rejoicing. Beyond all this merrymaking and happiness, Christmas also stands for some core values – a deeper meaning.

The Meaning of Christmas - What it Stands For
Joy is the word that we often associate with Christmas. The true joy that Christmas brings is not just the joy of having our family back home, or exchanging gifts with them. The true joy that Christmas stands for comes from within you – it is the joy that comes from the hope of a new beginning that the birth of Jesus Christ brings.

While we celebrate Christmas with fervor, there are many families and persons who cannot happily rejoice so well during the Christmas season. Those suffering from poverty, diseases and loss of the beloved ones are there, unable to share in the joy of Christmas. Christmas is also the time of remembering them, and extending a helping hand to make them happy if possible. Christmas, thus, also stands for mutual care, philanthropy and mercy.

Even as we are planning for shopping and decorations, there are millions of families around the world, whose lives are ruined by war and hostility. The bloodshed about which we hear in the newspapers is a reality for some unfortunate persons around the globe. Even within our society, we come across instances of mutual hatred taking its toll on people. And these ruins are brought upon them not by nature, but by human actions. It is in our hands to empathize with them, and try to help if we can. Above all, it is up to us to stand for and spread the value of peace, without which humanity has no existence. It is exactly this message of peace that each Christmas advocates.
A Merry Christmas to All from Bruce McCorry's Martial Arts Academy
Ultimately, the joy, peace and happiness that Christmas stands for does not come from just being happy. It derives from making others happy as well. Over the past forty years, Bruce McCorry's Martial Arts Academy has tried to make lives better and happier for others. The services of the academy have always tried to make people healthier, more confident, and happier. Through our programs, we have tried to find better lives for the specially abled and the seniors in our society. The Academy has always stood for the unity and happiness that arises from amity, friendship and cooperation.

If we have made any difference to anybody's lives, it became possible because you were with us. This Christmas, Bruce McCorry's Martial Arts Academy sends a very special Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays to All.

Karate Kids – Give the Gift of Confidence, Health and Well-Being

Karate Kids – Give the Gift of Confidence, Health and Well-Being
Written by: Master McCorry

What is it that your child will find most useful in his or her life? You might be asking yourself this question once or twice every year – especially during Christmas, the season of gifts. Everyone needs confidence, health and well-being to lead a happy life. But then definitely, these are not things that you can gift your kids. Or are they?

Karate: Give the Gift of Confidence, Health and Well-Being to your Children
If you want to gift your child confidence, well-being and a healthy life, then Karate is your key. Karate is a simple-to-learn yet effective martial art that has the potential to transform the life of your child. How exactly does Karate foster these hard-to-achieve qualities in your child?

Childhood is for many of us, too young an age to start working out. But everyone needs some kind of physical exercise to remain healthy and fit. Today’s children hardly spend any time on physical activities like playing or running about. Even school gyms fail at providing the necessary physical exercise for kids. That is where Karate comes to your child’s help. It is not intense or burdening like a typical workout, still it is more effective than a workout. It burns off the excess fat accumulated from junk foods, and enhances the blood circulation leading to healthier living.

Karate is not just for health and fitness. It also makes your child confident. Karate teaches many values that are a part of the eastern traditions where it takes birth. It teaches how to keep calm at the face of difficulties, how to face and overcome challenges, and how to take on the world boldly. Along with confidence, learners also achieve values like compassion, socializing, mutual help, trust and acceptable behavior.

Karate contributes to the holistic well-being of a child. It enhances the capacities of mind such as analytic power, reasoning ability, thought-processing and decision making. These are all faculties that would help children in studies, especially in subjects like arithmetic.

Gifting the Best: Karate Lessons at Bruce McCorry’s Martial Arts Academy
One of the best places that offers quality Karate lessons for children on the North Shore and surrounding areas is Bruce McCorry’s Martial Arts Academy in Peabody (Massachusetts).
