*gasp!* Yep, you heard me right--all that doesn't matter. Why?
Because Christmas is all about Jesus. Gifts, traditions, snow, cookies(yes even those yummylicious coconut balls dipped and drizzled in dark chocolate...), trees, and lights can't even start to compare to Him. (He created them all!! wow.)
So this Christmas let's focus on the real reason--Christ. The sacrifices that He made for us--being born a man, and ultimately His death and resurrection!
Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord.One of my pet peves is when people take the Christ out of Christmas! (x-mas, happy holidays, season's greetings--they try so hard not to say His name) My automatic response to that is to say, "Merry Christmas to you too!" and give a big smile! =D
Because you know
it's okay to say..Merry CHRISTmas!
Pass it on!
Merry Christmas everyone!
Love in Christ,
