And The Other Side Of The Story:

It might seem odd, but this does have something to do with my rant of last evening. In these days of Rampant Consumerism sometimes people need to be reminded. If you are of the Christian tradition, Christmas is not about presents or trees or decorations or parties or arbitrary dates or any of those things.

Why Christians SHOULD be celebrating Christmas:

Luke: Chapter 2

8 And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.

9 And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.

10 And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.

11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.

12 And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.

13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,

14 Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

Merry Christmas to all of you out there in Cyber-Land!
