    This season when more and more we may see Christ being removed from Christmas greetings, why not insure it can't be missed with the free windowm "MERRY CHRISTMAS" cling from CBN that includes free shipping. One only. Quantity amounts are available for a very small fee.

    I hope this isn't considered SPAM. I just want us to be able to find a way to respond and remind people the actual reason for the season. If this is SPAM, forgive me please. And of course delete it. I don't want to break any rules here.

    I really don't mind and even I say Merry Christmas, but sometimes I wonder if people are aware that there are about 5 holidays that happen about the same time.

    I dunno. I'm all about being inclusive,, but..."Happy Holidays" lacks...something. Even in 21st century America, its very much --Christmas--, you know? Santas all over the place, gifts, Christmas trees....religious or not, this is Christmas, American style. Deal with it, LOL.

    I lean (very) left on a lot of things, but I find some elements of "PC" speak to be...lacking. Bland. Banal. Boring, even.

    Christmas it is, for me anyway. :)

    Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, Season's Greetings, it doesn't matter.
    It's a time of year of great joy as we celebrate Jesus for what he did for us.
    So what ever song is playing, whatever people are doing, it's the time of year to tell people about Jesus.
    Anyone.
    They expect it.

    Christians are aware there is only one holy day that occured on December 25th as celebrated.
    A unique arrival, a unique remembrance, a unique savior. Those traditions that claim Christ's mass is a Christian recreatoin of pagan celebrations are of the devil. And it has been proven. And of course, why would the devil not want to insert that kind of lie into the minds of those already his? If they were truly open to receive the free gift of eternal life he'd be all alone in Hell. And on Earth for want of followers that believe in him.

    And they say there's no "war on Christmas".

    https://www.campusreform.org/?ID=10242

    It doesn't work anyhow because all the zombies are going to see on the outside is people eating ham and turkey, giving and recieving gifts, and spending time with family and friends and everyone having a good time. There free to join the fun and joy if they like. A saviour was born to us. Rejoice and have a party. No need to be negative and a party pooper.

    I wonder how long the war would be waged if Christian parents hearing of this on their child's campus pulled that child and the tuition monies out?
    I wonder would there be such an inclusive policy were the Muslim student groups on a campus to decorate on Ramadan?
