For several years now, many Christians have felt like Christmas is under attack. And it seems to just be getting worse! People are trying to change the Christmas you know and love into something else. Greeters at big-box chain stores are told to say “Happy Holidays” rather than “Merry Christmas” People are suggesting that maybe we should have Black Santa, or even Penguin-Santa. Really? Penguin-Santa? That’s almost as ludicrous as associating an egg-laying rabbit with the resurrection of Christ–almost.
But this doesn’t mean that people are trying to destroy Christmas. On the contrary, it means that they are trying to participate with you. Hasn’t it always been a cornerstone of Christian culture to try to
convert bring people into the religion? Wouldn’t making them feel more welcome during your biggest celebration be a good first step in that sacred goal?
