Despite what the legalistic Christians say or the edgy leftists, Christmas started as a holiday to celebrate the birth of our lord and savior, Jesus Christ. The feasts and the symbols may be pagan in origin but they are no longer used that way. Christmas is Christian, plain and simple.

People want to rip that from us. They rage against all that is good or find an excuse to be holier than thou. Corporations on the other hand seek to make it all about materialism as presents are exalted above the true meaning of the holiday. But we know Christmas is not about any of that. It is about thanking and celebrating God’s sacrifice. Don’t let the food and the gifts cause you to lose sight of that which we celebrate today.

Merry Christmas, and God bless.
