Bring back Jesus
To the editor:
I love Christmas. I enjoy participating in some of the area events celebrating Christmas. I even enjoy the shopping.
But again this year I’m saddened that we are celebrating a birthday without inviting the honored guest. One must look long and hard to find anything that suggests that Christmas is a celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ.
I’m thankful for the few local businesses and organizations that honor Christ and the real meaning of Christmas. I’m thankful for the stores that offer for sale Nativity items so that we can celebrate this special birthday in a lovely and meaningful way. I’m thankful to those who bravely say “Merry Christmas” when I make a purchase.
May we enjoy the fun, food and fellowship, but please remember to have a Merry Christmas.
