Don’t Hold Back Celebrating Your Christmas

The war on Christmas is over. Christmas won. Hands down.

Some will lead you to believe that it still rages. Some will tell you it has always been a fact of life.

But don’t buy into the hype. It’s not your Christmas they are after — it’s your religion.

Have you ever noticed that Christmas in July is heralded but if a Christmas tree is sold in a store in August the media just flips out?

Are you growing weary of lawsuits against schools and churches for celebrating or mentioning any of the sacred elements of Christmas?

You know, singing Jingle Bells is okay, but Silent Night is not?

Have you seen the fit people pitch over Nativity scenes in public places yet there is nothing wrong with naked people on magazine racks in full public view?

Have you noticed that you can’t see the word “Christmas” in airports or other public buildings — or even sing Christmas songs in VA hospitals?

Don’t you just love the annual Christmas campaigns in Times Square by atheist “organizations” claiming that God is a myth and that Christmas is stolen from pagans?

Aren’t you sick and tired of the war on Christmas? Yes, we are too.

All of that stuff doesn’t constitute a war on Christmas, however.

Billions still celebrate Christmas. There are still lights everywhere and trees and Nativities. People still give each other gifts. There is still goodwill among men.

Christmas has prevailed.

But fighting Christmas is a tool. Mocking Christmas is a marketing ploy. Dissing it and telling you how to even talk about it are all part of a plan. This is why it never stops.

All the things you claim to be weary of in the so-called War on Christmas isn’t really about Christmas at all.

It is about your religion.

They don’t want to hear about it. They don’t want to see it. They don’t want you believing it.

They want to take it away — turn you into a freak and demonize YOU for your faith.

Christmas is just their stage, their grand opportunity to mock you and to wear you down.

Don’t let them do it.

If you want to defend Christmas — and your religion — it is very simple:

Put up your tree, hang your stocking, say Merry Christmas.

Hang your lights, drink your eggnog, write letters to Santa, sing Christmas carols, and eat gingerbread.

Send your Christmas cards, give anonymously, pray for peace on earth, and search the skies on Christmas Eve.

Go to church. Ring those bells. Declare loudly — “Peace on Earth, goodwill to all men”.

Defending Christmas is easy. Just celebrate it.
