As you are no-doubt aware, Christians worldwide celebrate Christmas tomorrow (December 25). Christmas is the celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ, the divine Son of God, who has had more impact on humanity over the last ~2,000 years than all other men, governments, and movements combined. This is not a time for mindless consumerism. Christmas is when we should spend time with our families, spend time in worship, and celebrate the momentous arrival of the Son of God.
It is important that Christians reclaim this holiday from the secularized monstrosity it has become.
Later today, Melissa and I will be traveling to visit our family in southern Virginia for Christmas, and as we celebrate this holiday I will likely be a bit lax in posting on the site but will be back in time to ring in the new year. I wish all of you safe travels, and a Merry Christmas (or, for my Jewish friends, an ongoing Happy Hanukkah). God bless you, and please remember what we’re celebrating!
