Merry Christmas! Like It Or Not

Tomorrow Christians around the world celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. He is the ‘reason for the season’.

For those that do not believe in God, and thus, His Son, Jesus Christ. You do not have to do anything tomorrow other than go about your day as usual.

While it is the practice of Christians to try to bring other’s into the Faith. If you chose not to, then we ask that you respect our celebration by simply ignoring our celebration. In other words, not disrupting our celebration. There is nothing for you to lose by respecting our wanting to celebrate His Birth.

It seems that in the last decade, it has become more frequent for a minority of  naysayers to disrupt our celebration by trying to take away our Joy and Hope at this time of year. Either by filing suit to remove a manger scene from ‘public’ view, or some other minor attempt at imposing their minority will, to removing from sight any symbol of Christmas. Even those in “Hollywood” that seemingly take pleasure in producing programing that puts Christmas icons in a dirty light, not caring that children may see their perverse depictions, is ever-increasing.

While there may be a ‘right’ for you to do so, you have to realize that you can never truly win. Like the great deceiver satan, you have indeed, already lost. What is it that you are so afraid of that you must work so hard to try to deny our celebration? Whatever it may be, we just view you with sadness. And Hope.

For true Christians know it is not about the giving of gifts, the displaying of a manger scene, or even Santa Clause. But, the fact that we were given the Ultimate Gift – Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. Our Hope, partly, is that those who do not believe will discontinue fighting our celebration and join in with our Peace and Light.

So my simple, humble prayer for those that have no faith, is that you find that which is Peace, The Light, and The Way. Like it or not.
