“I miss you saying Merry Christmas.” – Jesus

Someone had posted a picture of that billboard on their Facebook.
First off, let’s get real. Jesus’ real birthday wasn’t December 25. 

Secondly, I think, more than we not being able to say “Merry Christmas” or having a nativity scene or whatever war we think culture is waging on Christmas– the fact that we, Christians (along with everyone else), have made this day more about us and what we get and how much we get and spending money, going into debt (or spending a bundle of money to put up a silly billboard to Jesus-juke everyone) and that Christmas and Consumerism has become synonymous, that may be the bigger war on Christmas. 

Actions speak louder than words — and collectively, our actions have shown that we also have waged a “war” on Christmas with treating Christmas like it’s our birthday (…unless you were born on the 25th). 

With all that said, 
I really do hope that you have a very Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays and a Outrageous Festivus. 

In all seriousness, may your Christmas be filled with love, joy, peace, and grace of God as you make lifelong memories with you and yours whilst celebrating one another and more importantly, celebrating the birth of Christ!
