It's Christmas That's Coming - Not "The Holidays"!

When July 4th comes around, or Memorial Day, the stores are quite happy to remind us of the specifics of each special day. They actually name the holidays! Well, why not the birth of Our Lord? Here's a video from Stuart Shepherd that I saw last year. It's still very appropriate!

Now as a rule, I'm not a fan of "contemporary" Christian music. However, I've got to hand it to this group of young men called "Go Fish". In this next video, one of them hits the nail on the head when he opines that a reason for purging the word "Christmas" from cultural lexicons is that people are still intimidated by Christ. Well, maybe they aren't so much as intimidated by Him as much as they resent the demands He makes on their wayward, corrupt consciences. Here it is!

Merry Christmas - or Tossmas, as the case may be!
