If you have time, I would love you [dear reader] to post here. I am wondering why Christians are debating the validity of Christmas? I get the whole history of it but am still unsure why there are those that are bent on Christmas being wrong. I am fairly certain that it is a time of remembrance of Christ’s birth and how thankful we are for Him. I am also fairly certain that no one mistakes the 25th for the actual day of Christ’s birth. It is probably a very good thing that we don’t know the exact time. I have read that we can guess at it because of when shepherds would take their flock around, and in which seasons they do so.
So my question is this, when did a time of remembrance become wrong? It seems that the Bible itself is filled with folks making pillars, altars, monuments and days of celebration for the sake of remembrance.
And yes, I have heard the sad and hollow arguement of how we should remember this always every day throughout the year and not set aside a day for Christmas or Easter or Fourth of July or what have you. I find it interesting that is okay to celebrate Thanksgiving. People, this is too odd.
I’m finished with my soap box now. Another thing I am curious about is how many of y’all know folks like this? I am wondering how widespread this scrooge-y attitude is. Comment if you have time! :o)
