A person relies on that comfort of Christmas each year, but what happens when your spirit isn't at home and it wonders elsewhere.
Those who have lost family members, experience Christmas outside a materialistic mindset, feel disconnection in spirit, and crave something outside of what they know. Those who feel that religion takes priority over the gifts and finds peace with the tru meaning of Christmas. The spirit of Christmas can be connected with the beauty of ritual, sacrifice, and giving spirit. The Christmas religious meaning celebrated in different cultures is what truly can make a spirit come alive. It's what can make a person come alive, open up their eyes to his beauty, feel authentic generosity rather than forced by culture, and to come closer to Christ.
It's to highlight that the Christmas spirit can come alive outside of home and repetition. A person may not feel like American culture is the home of their Christmas spirit. It may feel like something is missing not being out in a world where Christmas feels so alive. It does not discredit the beauty of religion anywhere, but it just acknowledges that a spirit can long for somewhere else. A spirit can feel empty without family and find their family in the world. Home can be where the spirit lies or perhaps one doesn't know how a spirit can flourish with a religious touch, new place, new people, and taking a risk to let the Lord in and learn cultures outside our own.
