Christmas, who?

I recently heard of a survey that had been carried out, where those carrying out the survey asked a number of school children who they considered to be the person behind Christmas. I must admit that I was not only surprised by the results but saddened by them too, as the majority of the school aged children asked said that Christmas was all about Santa.

What made the survey even more shocking was that when many of the children were asked directly if they knew who Christ was, many said they had never heard of him. So sad.

It’s a very said indictment on today’s world when so few children have even heard of Jesus, let alone recognise that the reason we celebrate Christmas is because of Him.

Christmas might be a time when we have fun giving and receiving gifts from our friends and family, but we must remember it’s our responsibility to remind the world the real reason for the season, otherwise Christ will be taken out of Christmas forever.
