Merry Christmas

The Christmas season is upon us and with it has come the major controversy, should it be a Christmas tree or a holiday tree? In our house, we put up a Christmas tree. Christmas ... for some reason, that word has become a violation of someone's Civil Rights. Give me a break! I find that very difficult to believe, especially since those same people have no problem spending US dollars on which are printed the words, "In GOD we trust." I'm sorry if you think the word God is violating your civil rights, but go read a history book and you will discover that America was founded on God. In GOD we trust! If you don't like it, move, but don't tell me I can't say CHRISTmas. Now is the time to put on your big girl panties and get over it. I don't get offended when someone says "Happy Hanukkah" or "Happy Kwanzaa". It doesn't bother me when someone chooses to celebrate Ramadan, either, but those same people have no right telling me that my faith, Christianity, is a violation of their rights.

Now, for those of you who insist on saying "happy holidays" or decorating your "holiday tree", you might want to keep in mind that the word holiday is actually a contraction for the term Holy Days, which goes back to the birth of Christ. Don't believe me? Look it up, and in the meantime have a MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Christ gave His life for you, and whether or not you choose to accept His gift is totally up to you. God said it, that settles it, and I believe it!
