There are so many things about CHRISTmas that I love.
These are two of those reasons.
I had a "friend" tell me recently that Christmas is bad and wrong. I said to her, "How can be it be so bad if it brings out the good in people?". It may not be the real birth of our Savior, but it is a day that the majority of people worship his birth and for others it is a day of giving and family and goodwill.
She said that Santa was made up by the Catholics. I say, "SO WHAT!". He is a symbol of giving and kindness. We don't worship Santa in our home. I am sure there are many that do, but we know what the true meaning of CHRISTmas is.
You can't stand in judgement of a day because of those that don't worship the Savior. It is a day that focuses us towards the one that can save us from ourselves.
It may not be the actual birth, but my children understand that this is about the Christ. They know that on CHRISTmas morning they will put Jesus in the manger of our Nativity. Their idea! They get the meaning.
