So, is this what Christmas is about?

A while back I had the opportunity to read the story of Brian "Head" Welch, who was the guitarist of the band Korn. Here is the book in a short version...from the website I AM SECOND...

So, is this what Christmas is all about?
Thoughts?

I have read the book and it is a most powerful story.

But if the question posed happens to be 'Is Christmas about Christ'. Then I would reply with a Halfhearted Maybe.
If we go back to the Christmas story we see Mary, Joesph, Baby Jesus, Angels, Shepards and a few Wise men to follow 2 or so years later. But I would say this because I most definatly do not have to be a Christian to celebrate Christmas. And instead of a Christ centered Christmas I could have a gift/present, family or food centered one.

I thought about your question, "So, is this what Christmas is all about?"
I viewed every testimony on the " I Am Second" website and have to say that this is what Jesus is all about. You could infer that Christmas and Easter are included in my statement but all of those life stories are about the power of Jesus to change lives. In all of these stories the individuals have reached a point where they have become "poor in spirit" (Matt. 5:3) where now God can mold and make them into the people He wants them to be.
