“Adore Him,” you say? “Is this CHRISTmas?”

I was furious when, on Facebook,  I read this; one reason being that the eight-year-old referenced here is my grandson, and the mother’s post concerned how her son was to speak in a public school in San Diego, CA.

My third grader has just informed me that they are now supposed to say “Happy Holidays” and the Christmas tree is to be a “Holiday Tree”.

Wrong. Just wrong. Also silly and unconstitutional. For the holiday season which we are experiencing today, culminates on  the 25th of December, an official United States of America holiday, which day is Christmas. CHRISTMAS. It’s called Christmas, not Holiday. It’s called Christmas because it is to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ.

Let us adore Him, the God of all the universe, who loving us so much, prepared Himself a body, and came to earth. Isaiah beautifully prophesied the event in chapter 9, verse 6.

“For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

I recently became aware of the group whose music I’m bringing here. Please listen to this stunning rendition of  Oh, Come All Ye Faithful, an enduring, majestic song of the Christmas season. (If you have headphones, so much the better.)

  1. In my old age, this old white guy has developed a habit, be it good or be it bad. I listen to the personal, employs, associates your choice of term. What is there greeting, Marry Christmas or happy holidays? Then I know where I will spend my shackle at this time of year!

    Discounts be hanged!!



  2. Shirley,

    First let me say that I like the holiday re-design. Kudos. Secondly, We live in the United States where even your grandson (if I follow you correctly) has the right to free speech. He can call the tree anything he wishes, of course within reason.

    On the other hand I don’t mind the press from some to de-Christ the holiday. Why? It strengthens the resolve of those who actually celebrate the “birth” of Christ, and causes others to question what they are really celebrating.
