A Christmas letter from Joel Schacter....
My Grandchildren burst out into giggles whenever I yell a question to Siri, who rarely gives me the answer I’m looking for and seems to have trouble understanding how I speak. Seriously! I was curious as to what Siri would say when I asked her, “What is Christmas?” Siri’s first response was to pull the definition out of Wikipedia where it states:
“Christmas is an annual festival commemorating the birth of Jesus Christ, observed primarily on December 25 as a religious and cultural celebration among billions of people around the world.”
I was even more curious to ask Siri “Who is Jesus?” to receive the following response:
“Jesus[e] (c. 4 BC – c. AD 30 / 33), also referred to as Jesus of Nazareth and Jesus Christ,[f] was a first-century Jewish preacher and religious leader. He is the central figure of Christianity. Most Christians believe he is the incarnation of God the Son and the awaited Messiah (the Christ) prophesied in the Old Testament.”
Whether you believe Jesus was the incarnate Son of God, or a very wise man, there are few that would argue whether he did exist. Many would agree that his time on earth altered the course of history and his teachings are incredibly beneficial to mankind and life changing to those who follow Him.
Whatever your personal beliefs are and however you celebrate Christmas in your home and with your family, the Schacter family and the Elevation Real Estate Group wish you a very Merry Christmas and a year ahead that bubbles over with laughter, where you are blessed with good health and experience the joy of celebration and relationship with your friends, coworkers and family.
Wishing you a Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year,
