We need to remember what Christmas is and the reason for the season. It is time to wake up and realize that it is because of God we celebrate Christmas. We should not be saying Happy Holidays or signing x-mas. Our country was based on God and we have to stop people from telling us how we should be worshiping. It is bad enough they want to take God out of public places, but at Christmas we Christians have to make a stand and stand up for our belief. Put up your manger scenes and tell others ‘Merry Christmas’ After all Jesus is the reason for the season and it is time we get that back and honor him like we ought to. God is sending us all these signs how we have turned or backs on him and it is time we listen. .
It is time to remember how it was when we were young, going to church with our families, Participating in the Christmas pageants at school. We had our manger scenes up and never was anything said about them. We sang Christmas carols from after Thanksgiving until Christmas, Now we turn the radio on and we are lucky if we hear one Christmas song a day, and more than likely it will be something like ‘grandma got run over by a reindeer’
How about we start singing ‘Silent night’, ‘Away in a manger’, or ‘Holy Night’ once again. As a CCD teacher, it is hard to make the children understand all these things. They are not thought to put Christ among one of the first things in their life.
So when we are out among people and someone wishes us ‘Happy Holidays’ we need to answer back ‘ – ‘Merry Christmas’ ! Let us see how many people we can get using these words again. To use them like we used to in the good old days and to use them to remember the reason for the season! Jesus our savior is born!
