If Christmas is the entry of Jesus upon earth there will be a second Christmas - He will enter again.
Christmas first spells forever peace, but with an equal veracity carries the sub-title final judgement.

Then will appear the sign of the Son of Man in heaven. And then all the peoples of the earth will mourn when they see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven, with power and great glory. And he will send his angels with a loud trumpet call, and they will gather His elect from the four winds, from one end of the heavens to the other. (Matthew 24:30-31)
Bethlehem was only ever a preface to eternity.
