Keep Christ in Christmas!

Say what you want. That Jesus Christ was actually born in the Spring and Christianity moved his birth to co-incide with the Winter festival in central Europe. (That's been proven to be true.)

Of maybe you don't believe that Christ was ever born. (That i can't help with. It's called Faith.)

I was at Target near my house last week. (It actually takes me longer to get in and out of my van than it does to drive to Target.) There's a young lady (Early 20's) who always seems to be working when I shop there. She wished me "Happy Holidays". I told her "Merry Christmas". She got a big grin on her face and whispered to me, "We aren't supposed to say that."

I'm not The Golden Calf of Bristol. (I thought the SNL Skit was hilarious!)

Remember where "Christmas" came from!

If I told someone Merry Christmas and they were jewish and celebrated Hannakuh instead, it'd be awkward.....so happy hollidays makes in a comfortable pleasantry for everyone, regardless of religion or what they celebrate.

But that isn't going to make sure everyone knows Jesus Rules and...well not Jesus drools. And we can't have that because evangelizing everyone to your religious belief is as American as Apple Pie and Social Security.

Happy Holidays!

I regularly have faith that people are raised from the dead and that virgins have babies. Does that make me crazy or just religious?

The vitriol you have for Christmas and Christians is sad.
