Consider This... Put CHRIST back in Christmas

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Christmas brings a special spirit that can hardly be duplicated any other time of the year. And sadly, it's the uniqueness of Christmas that also makes a few folks uncomfortable. Why? Because CHRISTmas was named after Jesus Christ.

And that name makes some folks uncomfortable enough to want to omit it all together. So we are left with some groups choosing "Happy Holidays" instead of "Merry Christmas." Diminishing the actual meaning of the holiday itself. Think about it. How many other American holidays can you think of that reference an actual faith? Easter is not called "Christ Resurrection Day". So there is no controversy. It's just Easter. There are also several holidays in the month of February but we don't say "Happy Holidays" in February. Christmas is just special that way.

Now, I'm not trying to force Christmas on anyone who chooses not to celebrate but enough with the political correctness. And consider this: don't shop at a store that makes a profit on Christmas presents and décor but leaves out the name. Instead shop locally where they support the majority with "Merry Christmas" greetings. It seems the radical minority are trying to water down this holiday for the majority. The only reason we have the "holidays" is because there was a Christmas first. And Christmas was named after the birth of Christ. So enjoy the spirit of the season, celebrate how you will, and from my family to yours, have a very merry Christmas.
