WHEN CHRISTMAS WAS
Once upon a time Christians celebrated the birth of Christ.
There was a time that exchanging gifts was a minor part of Christmas. The theme was "Peace on Earth, good will toward men".
The greed that now encompasses the annual Christmas holiday should be turned over to any and all who desire participating regardless of what it is called. Christians can always celebrate in their homes and churches in the traditional ways they choose.
Shame on the people who call themselves Christians and make it their business to cram their religion down the throats of everyone when we can simply give the ultimate gift of sacrifice on the behalf of others and live as we are taught, by an example of love.
No matter what the holiday is called, there will always be Christmas:)
