The true meaning is found in The American magazine, vol. 28 (1889):

"To give up one's very self — to think only of others — how to bring the greatest happiness to others — that is the true meaning of Christmas"
It comes in the form of a gift, a carol, a song, good tidings, reunions, prayer, cheerful smiles, an enchanting trip, an adventure, dreams come true, renewed friendships, peace, a bonus, etc.

" Thoughts come and go. Feelings come and go. Find out what it is that remains, " says Ramana Maharishi. What remains?. Why it`s love! Christmas which is represented by Christ is love. It`s this love we are searching for all our lives. It is the I am..It is what St Paul says in his letter to the Corinthians, " Of faith and charity, the greatest is love.."

1 Corinthians 13:4-7

 " Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.  It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.  Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.  It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres."

What is unique in Christ is because he preached love. He did not tell his disciples to meditate till you drop dead. He did not teach self-realization and go into samadhi, experience a CC. Nope. Christ was not Buddha or Ramana. Christ knew who he was. The this. the that, the I am. Christ knew it was vast and unimaginable. Everything come and go. Love remains. It is eternal. This No Thing impersonalists describe is nothing but love. It is precisely this time of the year ( month of December/Christmas } that we manifest this love to all.

Krsnaraja Melvin, this is a great christmas discussion.  We've missed you being around too.
