Well, here we go again. Some call it “the most wonderful time of the year.” So did I for more than half a century. However, facing the facts and doing research on Christmas over recent years, has led me to think and act differently. I no longer believe that the essence of Christmas is Christ. Mary’s boy child Jesus Christ was not born on Christmas Day. The date of December 25th and its pagan origin that waggled its way into Christianity many centuries ago gives food for thought and discussion among Christians and non-Christians.

The celebration of Christmas is nowhere to be found in scripture. In this age of information, there’s no reason for one to remain ignorant on any subject. You may choose to hold on to beliefs and traditions without questioning or you may choose not to remain shallow and superficial and accept and practice new facts and insights of your faith in accordance with your personal conviction and the Word. For many years I ignored the real reason for the season. Sometimes the truth can be scary and even cause you to feel uncomfortable.

In some chapters of my autobiography “Go Ahead, You’re Home” I relate how I used to celebrate Christmas. I believe and accept that Christ was born for the redemption of mankind. However, commemoration and celebration of a date and season or even abstinence is a personal choice by conviction. Whatever your belief, tradition or practice may be, love, peace, gratitude and kindness should be practiced the whole year through. Philippians 4:8

Season’s Greetings, Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas and a Blessed and Prosperous 2018.
