O.K., wait a minute, I'm "Church of Christ," right?! For those of you fellow members of the Church, I know that there is no evidence that Christ's birth occurred on December 25th, and that there is no biblical reference to a celebration of any such day. Yet, I am not truly comfortable with Christmas being merely a secular holiday, although that is certainly its origin. I believe that we are to honor Him in all that we do, and December 25th is no exception. Jesus's birth was truly a miraculous event, but His life was THE example that we should strive to follow every day. His death, His sacrifice so that we have the opportunity to spend eternity with him, was His ultimate gift. And then...the resurrection...WOW, His promise fulfilled. As we all spend Christmas with our families, let us remember Him, not only for His birth, but all that He is. He lives; Praise Him!
May you all have a very Merry Christmas!
