This is something that has been on my mind for several days now. Having been raised in The Church of Christ, I was taught that we do not celebrate Christmas as a religious holiday. It is not Christ's birthday. I understand this. We never had manger scenes in our house or yard, nor did we send cards with "Jesus is the reason for the season" on them.
Here is the problem: apparently there are people out there in the world who want to change Christmas to just the "Winter Holiday." They want to take Jesus out of Christmas. Well, hmmm......I have to say that I don't really want that either. While I may not want to celebrate Jesus' "birthday", it worries me that people want to take Jesus out of everything. As Christians I think we should all be concerned when this sort of thing is suggested. This is a threat to Christianity and I think we need to stand up against it.
