Christmas is nearly here! We patiently wait to celebrate the birth of the baby Jesus. Remember folks... and be man or women enough to call it what it is. This is the season of CHRISTMAS! If we were living in Israel we would call Hanukkah ... yes Hanukkah. If we lived in Iraq we would call Ramadan... yes Ramadan. There is no good gained by calling Christmas "the Holidays". If your friends or family do not believe in Christ then you should respect them enough to send them a card on their chosen special day , whether it is Happy Hanukkah or Happy Chinese New Year. Do not disrespect them by turning their special days into a "nothing Holiday". Also respect Christian beliefs instead tearing the Christ from Christmas.
Have a joyful Advent, Steve
