A hashtag campaign is taking Twitter by storm once again. This time the hashtag #ChristmasMeans is prompting thousands of Christians to share the true meaning of Christmas -- Jesus Christ. 


Many Christian leaders have joined the chorus, including Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby and Archbishop of York John Sentamu. 


Welby tweeted, “#ChristmasMeans that in Jesus, God has given us the most precious gifts of all: forgiveness and hope.” 


Sentamu wrote, "#ChristmasMeans God is at work amongst us. He is closer than you think. Praise Him!" 


Christian Today reports that the hashtag began trending when the Church of England headquarters told its clergy to encourage church members to get out their smartphones and post the true meaning of Christmas. 


A similar campaign under the hashtag #EasterMeans reached 29 million people last April.
