Two weeks today will be Christmas Day, so on that day, what will you be celebrating?

The giving and receiving of presents? A family feast? The birth of Jesus Christ?

First and foremost Christmas is about the birth of Jesus all those years ago, so while I will hopefully be giving and receiving some presents and eating too much food, I will definitely be thanking God for sending His son Jesus to earth.

As a Christian, I’ve been really annoyed and frustrated and the “campaign by some to stop us from calling Christmas, Christmas but instead just all it a holiday. Yes most of us do get a few days holiday at Christmas time, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be a celebration of Christ‘s birth too!

I believe that we should all be free to celebrate the religious festivals applicable to our religion, and in doing so should not be dictated to what we actually call them. Therefore let us keep Christ in Christmas. After all without Christ there would never have been a Christmas!

Jesus truly is the reason for the season…”Christ”mas!
