More on Christmas

Tom Ascol writes more on Chritmas, Christmas Irony, and I truly think we need to take his words to heart as we celebrate the birth of our Savior. I agree that too often Christmas seems to be an excuse to make up for all of ones neglect of God the rest of the year. Sort of like a trip to the confessional to clean ones slate. However the only one this fools is ourselves as God is not fooled by it all.

I think if one is serious about Christmas maybe the boycott should be that we do not wish to see the word "Christmas" next to any thing remotely material. So instead of being upset at Christmas being absent from advertising we should be upset at it being in the advertising.

In all of this I too do celebrate the birth of our Lord but also see the ever increasing lack of any true ties to the incarnation in most peoples celebrations this time of year.
