Im My Humble Opinion:
Once again December 25th is rapidly approaching and anti-Christmas forces are busily set about the task of removing all traces of Jesus and religion from public sight. Anti-Christmas forces are busy in schools where children will take Winter breaks instead of traditional Christmas Holiday breaks, children are being taught about “Friendship Trees” instead of traditional Christmas Trees. Some government agencies and even private sector businesses are directing employees to use politically correct greetings like “Happy Holidays” instead of Merry Christmas. One has to look ever harder to view Nativity scenes and displays although other faiths are readily displaying their symbols in the public arena.
Did I miss something or isn’t Jesus Christ and the fact that He was born on December 25th the whole reason for Christmas to begin with? Christmas is the celebration of the birth of our Lord, Jesus Christ and there is no other reason at all. Sure, who doesn’t want to get presents, or have fabulous meals and wonderful deserts, and seeing family is always great at Christmas but these are simply perks of the season and not the reason for the season.
Frankly, I am horrified at the assault on Christmas and the attempts to wipe it from public view. How could this possibly be happening in a country where nearly 70 plus percent of Americans profess Christianity? If the extremely vocal, minority do not wish to celebrate Christmas, then don’t celebrate it but do not tell me that I can not celebrate it or how to celebrate it. We hear so much about how we should be tolerant of other faiths and religions and yet we are met with the highest degree of intolerance from these very people for simply trying to observe what is easily the most important holiday of all to Christians.
Isn’t it time that we stand up for ourselves and quit allowing these hypocritical, knee jerk, radicals to dictate how and when we can celebrate the birth of our Lord? The answer should be a resounding yes. The answer is to become knowledgeable about what is and what is not allowed by our constitution and standing up for those rights whereever they are being abused. There is strength in numbers so it is definitely time for like minded Christians to unite behind saving one of our most revered holidays. Take time to educate yourself about what you can do to help and find others who will join you in saving Christmas as we have known it all of our lives.
Have a Merry Christmas and May God Bless You and Yours!
