It's about getting the perfect Christmas tree and decorating it with little, whimsical ornaments.
It's all about eating as much food as we can get our hands on.
It's about lying to our kids and telling them Christmas is about some creepy, bearded man that is going to fall through our chimney, maybe get stuck and eat our cookies and swap it out for cheap, plastic presents.
Christmas is about getting together with family who we rarely see and some would probably like to keep it that way.
Christmas is about singing traditional Christmas songs like Jingle Bells and Deck the Halls.
Christmas is about wearing god awful Christmas sweaters and throwing a party.
Christmas is about sitting on Santa's lap and telling him what we want and when we want it.
It's about shopping, shopping and more shopping.
Finding those perfect gifts for the people we love. Because that's how we show we love them...(catch the sarcasm in my typing).
But I thought Christmas had to do with this guy named Jesus.
In the hustle and bustle from Black Friday to December 25th, he's rarely if ever mentioned.
Jesus---who Christmas is really about, gets lost in all the tensile and wrapping paper.
Yesterday my pastor talked about this same thing. Where is Jesus and why isn't he being talked about?
My brother-in-law, with 3 young kids, texted me and talked about how there are no Christmas coloring books with Jesus in them.
I'm done with being politically and religiously correct and I challenge you to get fed up with it too!
It's time to Jesus to get mentioned.
It's time for people to know the real meaning of Christmas.
It's time we, as Christians, stop getting caught up in the commercialized Christmas.
It's a better story anyways.
Tell the story of Jesus.
Life if better that way.
Christmas is better that way!
