UPDATE: Merry Christmas to you and your Family!

“The LORD bless you and keep you; the LORD make his face shine on you and be gracious to you; the LORD turn his face toward you and give you peace.” Numbers 6: 24-27

God Bless!


ORIGINAL MESSAGE: I would like to wish my family
and friends a very merry Christmas. God has blessed me with a wonderful
family and great friends. I pray that each of you will enjoy this our
Lord's birthday and that you will reflect on the blessings you have
received in 2007. To my friends who I have not met but who may find and
read my postings, I pray that if you do not know the Lord as your personal
savior that you will not hesitate to ask him into your heart. Jesus
died so you can live. I am not worthy of his sacrifice and neither are
you. He took your place on that cross because he loves you, no other
reason. Give Christ the greatest gift on his birthday, your life. "He
died for you, can't you live for him?"

I'm quite enjoying a quiet Christmas at home in the bosom of my home with my loved ones. We usually travel at Chrismas to be with family in western Canada but it isn't happening this year due to a number of reasons. After a busy 2010 I'm actually really, really finding the quiet and freedom relaxing. Have a great holiday everyone. Keep a fire burning if its cold outside.

Christmas is great because people really do go all out. Corners that may be cut at Thanksgiving ("can't make the trip this time...," "instant stuffing's just so easy to make," etc.) aren't cut at Christmas. They aren't even considered. Preparations begin months in advance. It's the wedding of holidays.

Combine the enthusiasm people have with a little snow, a fire, some of the good champagne you'd never open absent the "right occasion," and some quiet Christmas music in the background, and you're reminded why there really is no equal in the world of holidays. Thanksgiving's a great, no-nonsense food event (happily undiluted by the distraction of gift-giving), but it withers in Christmas' awesome shadow.

One of my favourite times of the year and I love everything about it. From the cheesy Christmas songs and carols, to the awful things on TV, to the food, it's just great. What makes Christmas so special is spending that extra time with your family and friends. No-one can deny the run-up to Christmas and how people feel and the lovely celebrations before. Christmas is the one time of the year you get to see everyone and do everything in such a short space of time and that's what I love the most.

This looks like the opportunity to wish all of you here a Merry Christmas, even those of you who aren't lapsed Irish Papists, which by my count is pretty much all of you with a couple of exceptions.

Celebrate how you choose, and what you choose, or not at all, and may the wind be at your back, the road rise up to meet you, the cup be never empty, and may you be half an hour in heaven before the devil knows you're dead.

Evil pagan holiday. Witless "secularists" celebrate it as well. All government offices are shut down this day. Separation of church and state my ass.

The entire story is made up. Both Matthew and Luke originally began with chapter 3 (the Baptism of John) just like Mark & John's "gospels". Paul never mentions it. It's totally bogus. Enough with the idolatry already.

I love the overall fun of holiday, opening presents, decorating the tree, being with friends and family, and everything else, that goes with it.

The downside?

Some Christmas songs, get put on the repeat loop on radio stations, line ups at malls, and finding a really great parking spot in the parking lot, before mass begins.

Many of the defining aspects of Christmas, such as the Christmas tree, are from pagan tradition, which is not a bad thing necessarily, but it's....interesting, and unknown by many people.

I'm not a big fan of Christmas because I think it makes people act phony at that time of the year....specifically extended family members. It's also way too commercialized, and it makes little kids think that they should get umpteen presents just because they exist.

Even though I'm only 19 and have yet to worry about the gift purchasing and wrapping, and the endless cooking and socializing, I'm always relieved when the holidays are over. Life can finally become "normal" again, and everything is much less complicated.

Christmas is my favourite holiday period despite the fact that I am not Christian (even though I was Christened :P). On the lead up to Christmas and over the holiday people's attitudes always change - people try to make an effort to be kinder and more polite in the spirit of the holiday, but it also means that tempers can run thin as people are rushing around trying to get ready. I don't think the short tempers really make a difference to the enjoyment of the holiday, it's something that has become part of Christmas unintentionally.

Traditionally on Christmas Day we'd have my Grandma and Granddad over for Christmas dinner at midday and then a buffet lunch in the evening and would then spend the evening playing Trivial Pursuits and watching Christmas television. Then on Boxing Day we'd then go over to theirs for a similar sort of day. Unfortunately since my Grandma died around 10 years ago we stopped doing this until last year when my Granddad came over to stop with us (though typically the one time I was ill all year happened to be over Christmas and was pretty much confined to bed).

Other than the kindness of people over Christmas, one of my favourite other part of the festivities is the Christmas dinner my Dad always spends the morning cooking. Traditionally we'll have Turkey, one or two types of stuffing, parsnips, roast potatoes, cheese and potato pie, carrots, swede, cauliflower, sausages, apple sauce, cranberry sauce and gravy (don't think I'm forgetting anything!). It may be quite a big meal but it is absolutely delicious.

I can't wait for Christmas - it really is such a fun time; maybe one of these years we'll actually have that ever elusive white Christmas too.

In spite of the fact that Christmas has been smothered in commercialism I have decided to continue celebrating it with any and all of my Christian friends. From what I have observed over the last 20 years, or so, Cristmas seems to end abruptly after the presents have been opened. But, I know there is more to it than this.

So, what I have decided to do this year is to switch Christmas and Halloween. I do all of my giving on Halloween. On Christmas, I build a blind on my roof and hose down all of the Carolers...

So many people are asleep when it comes to this pagan holiday. Jeremiah 10: 3-8, makes it clear about the tree. Santa, might as well be Satan. We are not to celebrate this pagan holiday, we are to glory in the cross, not the birth of Christ., and besides, people who claim to celebrate Christ birth, NONSENSE! They put up the tree, which is pagan practices, and run to the shopping malls like a heard of cattle. Celebrate the finish work of the cross, and the glorious ressurrection.

Christmas usually sucked for me. My mom always gave me the "love" excuse, so I usually didn't get presents. But I love this holiday, Charlie Brown, Rudolph the Red Nose Raindeer, the parades, Christmas trees, and Christmas lights. I always have Christmas dinner with my folks and that's always good. That time of year always makes me feel so giddy!

This celebration is a pegan holiday. Jesus was not born on Dec. 25. Christmas is a mix of pegan customs--from the sun/seasonal worship of the greeks, to the tree fanatics of Germany who brought over the tree and rituals (aka Santa Claus). While having a time set aside for being with family is important, it is a bad excuse to practice rituals, especially in the name of Jesus (phuh). I really don't see any excuse to celebrate Christmas and I am sure God doesn't either. Sadly, people are too consumed with traditions from their ancestors and not consumed enough with how to please God or make the world a better place.

The thing i most enjoy about Christmas, apart from the presents, is the sense of family togetherness. I love the way that, for once, me and my siblings are being friendly toward one another instead of deliberately winding each other up, and how, despite the fact that there's a lot to get done (such as getting the huuuuuge turkey ready for dinner time), the atmosphere is really relaxed. However, i do feel a bit weird about celebrating Christmas sometimes, as i'm not a Christian and therefore i don't celebrate the birth of Christ, which is really what it's all about. I think a lot of people (including myself ;) ) tend to forget that, due to the extensive advertising. The commercialisation of Christmas is another thing that i dislike; does anyone else remember the time when the Christmas hype began a week before the big day? Over in the UK, most shops, particularly the supermarkets, have begun stocking up for Christmas by September; that's BEFORE Halloween! I think that there is the danger of Christmas becoming an anti-climax, as there are months and months of hype about it, and then as soon as it comes, we're expected to move on and carry on as normal almost instantly.

Christmas is NOT Jesus's birthday, anybody who would put 5 minutes of research into it would realize that. Constantine decided to declare December 25th the day to celebrate his chosen religious belief. Until then (312AD) it was a pagan celebration (winter solstice). In fact, until Constantine came to power it was illegal to practice Christianity. Nonetheless, the holiday is exciting.....for my children.

Christmas 5

Many people today make the mistake when they hear the word Christmas. They don't think of Jesus and His miraculous birth. Instead, they think of family gatherings, festive meals, decorations, and gifts. To them, Christmas brings nostalgia and memories of childhood. Now, all this celebration isn't wrong. But if that's all that Christmas means to us, we are missing its true significance. The real meaning of this special day is summed up in the words of the angel to the shepherds on that night long ago: "I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people. For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord" (Luke 2:10-11). Christmas surely should not be good if you don't know Jesus Christ as you hope. Don't celebrate Christmas without inviting the Guest of honor.

Let's redo Christmas. Instead of buying diamond rings or earrings for your girlfriend/wife from Zales to "prove" you love her, why not save the money and buy someone in need a gift they need? Buy any kids you know something they like, so on and so forth. Christmas is not a time to give your equals or superiors presents, but should be a time to give back to the community. It's depressing to see a country brainwashed into thinking that buying unnecessary gifts and presents somehow proves something. Christmas is good for little kids, and that's it. Once you get older, if you are so immature that you still hold out your hands from your boyfriend/husband/parents for expensive toys for grownups, you are sad. Save that money you were going to use to buy that diamond ring or that electronics device from Best Buy for some idiot that has the money to buy his own or doesn't even deserve it, and go slip a few gas station guys and waitresses a hundred bucks, hand out gift certificates to restaurants at soup kitchens, or buy stuff on wish lists for needy people. That's the true spirit of the Christmas season; giving to people IN NEED.

There is validity in each comment here by different reviewers concerning the celebration of Christmas. Yes, it is a usurped pagan holiday that is has put the birth of Jesus Christ on the same day as one that was celebrated over a thousand years before His birth, that of a heathen sun god. Yes, many of the traditions that we use in the Christmas celebrations are not scriptural; the traditional nativity scene for one, the Magi, who were humble wise men seeking the truth, did not first visit Jesus in the manager of His birth, but in a house several days later. From the Yule log, the poisonous mistletoe to Santa Claus all of these have their roots in pagan worship, yet I do not notice anyone worshiping these things during the Christmas season. Why has the birth of Jesus been so corrupted and brought down to such a secular level and yes as mentioned, no longer the main reason for the season? I agree that the commercialism has long gotten out of hand with decorations already being sold in stores months before. The stress of the season can get to be too much especially with the frenzied shopping, marathon baking, gift-wrapping and overindulgences that seem to have become a necessity. What I do know is that the birth of Jesus is Biblical, the books of Matthew and Luke go into great detail in giving accounts of His birth. I also know that without the birth of Jesus Christ there would not be the Biblical salvation for mankind, that in itself is cause for celebration. I have to say it is my favorite time of year but I have long stepped back from the hustle and bustle of checking my list to make sure I have completed everything on my list and left no one or nothing off of it. It should be a time for reflection with family and friends coming together and the giving to those less fortunate. I love it all, the Christmas eve pageants, the carolers, the roast beast feasts, the twinkling lights and holly and gaily decorated wreaths and trees and the air that seems to be permeated with cinnamon and cloves. Yet each Christmas night when the rest of the family is sleeping and the house is quiet and at rest, I sit back and look up at the old worn star atop my Christmas tree and I thank God for his greatest gift of all, His Son.

I don't see any reason why this shouldn't be the best holiday of the year for everyone regardless of religious views. For some it is a time to reflect on the birth of Jesus and what it has meant in their lives. For others, it's a time of cheerful decorations and the exchange of presents. Even my Jewish and atheist friends like Christmas because unless they are substituting for a Christian friend at work, it's a paid day off and a good day to go out and get some Chinese food. You don't need to have a religious connotation to use Christmas as a time to perhaps give some gifts to people that you love, or get together with the family for a big meal. That's the nice thing about Christmas...... you don't need to be a Christian to take part in the spirit of the holiday. Everyone likes to see a kid's face light up when they receive that unexpected present and it's a chance to be generous without embarrassment, maybe heal some wounds that were opened during the year, or just kick back for the day and take in a movie or watch TV knowing that at least for this one day, most people will be a little friendlier. Riches are not always measured in terms of material goods so if your finances require that the decorations and presents be humble, there's no limit on love and the giving of one's self. So whether Christmas represents a day of reflection about Christ, or a big portion of beef with broccoli, it's a day that we all can celebrate and share what we have with the people we love, whether those gifts are tangible or intangible.

Christmas 5

First off, happy holidays everyone! Hope it brings everyone all the best. Overall this is probably my personal favorite time of year; getting together with friends and family and being thankful for the past years events are always a welcome reprive, no matter what you're religious or ethnic orientation may be. Times have become so polarized that we're even not beginning to talk about the secularization of Christmas. Reality is that Christmas has historically very little to do with Christianity from Biblical perspective. Christmas was actually the old Roman festival of Saturn, which celebrated the beginning the winter season. Santa and Christmas trees are both ancient Nordic tradtions also with no connections to Christianity. Christ wasn't even born on Christmas day, the Catholic church simply adopted this so it would overlap the traditional festival of Saturn. Nevertheless, the holiday does contain significant religious connotations that should be respected. The culture warriors are even extending the battle to Christmas carols -- secularists believe that the singing of such songs attempt to establish religion. Reality is that it does no such thing. Such an action won't lead to the establishment of a state religion, which is what the constitution bans. Go back in history and lots of art has religious connotations. These folks are just as intolerant as their fellow warriors on the other side of the fence. These culture wars are not good for the country; in my view, they are a product of overly delicate sensitivities. Religious art is beauty manifested, whether it comes from Christianity, Judaism, Islam and Buddhism. A pluralistic society demands a free exchange of ideas; either a. stuffing religion down ones throat or b. blocking religious expression, is not conducive for this. We are a tolerant society for the most part, but some of us simply have no stomach for other views and other ways of life. Such conflict is rooted in attitudes that are way too individualistic; a Jewish person can certainly join in on Christmas celebrations. What is there to stop it? No one's religious beliefs are being threatened. Religion is something that is highly personal, so no one who is truly religious will be affected by secular views -- no matter what anybody says. Freedom of religion is one of the greatest social mechanisms which was built into our constitution: although religions have contradictory belief systems, such freedom allows us to circumvent this. There are community standards that override such considerations. Americans can believe in whatever they want and our only obligation is to simply let others be. Christmas should be a celebration of many things, above all, it should celebrate our freedom; something we all value equally.

I would give Christmas a good. I do like Christmas. I still remember that this is the day to celebrate. Jesus. Our family likes our own traditions of putting up the tree and decorating. We each get a new decoration for the tree each year,We have our selection of Christmas movies we enjoy watching each year Of course we always listen to our Christmas music every year.We have our family get togethers. The only hard part is the stress of the shopping, wrapping. and hoping to have enough money to have a decent Christmas. We do NOT spend a ton of money or run up our credit cards.However we do want our kids to have a few things they want.I do like Christmas,but there can be an awful lot of work, and the stress of getting together with all the relatives. Not everyone one has that perfect Norman Rockwell family.

I love Christmas, as the embodiment of the Christian co-opting of the winter solstice, when the light starts to return. I love the smell of the people in Wal-Mart, waving at the guy who cut me off in traffic with just one finger, and greeting the woman who took my parking space with a cheery Hey, honey, who's gonna watch your car when your inside? Seems like an awful lot of cars are getting keyed this time of year. It warms the cockles of my heart (whatever those are). It's a great time to spend contemplating the coming winter, and remembering the Zocor was invented just so I can have another eggnog.
