Light up the Meaning of Christmas

As believers we become disturbed when we see society commercialize this wonderful season. It is being secularized by stores selling “holiday” trees instead of “Christmas” trees and even store clerks having to say “Happy holidays” instead of “Merry Christmas”.

We get frustrated and upset when local townships decide not to celebrate and honor the birth of Christ with a Nativity scene in the township squares and public places and yet many churches neglect to use this opportunity to display a Nativity scene outside or even inside their churches. What is wrong with this picture? What do you think?

Yes, of course, I decorate my tree and house with lights but I try to put the emphasis on the Christ of Christmas with a large Nativity display in the front of our home. Praying that this witnessing tool will remind our neighborhood that there is more to Christmas than Santa Claus and reindeers.
