A new Christmas

Lets face it, the real reason for christmas is gone! It has been replaced by a consumer driven frenzy called purchasmas! The celebration of Christ’s birth has been overrun. I see no way of getting it back from what it has become so I propose we do something different. Since most of us are aware that at some point the church moved Christmas to cover a pagan festival lets move it back. If we don’t know what day lets move it to something like May 15th. That way it is all by itself were we can celebrate the coming of our Lord without the presents and malls. Lets agree to leave the consumer driven stuff where it is and create a day where we stop and thank God for what he has done for us. Before you say that is what thanksgiving is for I would contend it has been replaced with the bulking up for Black Friday! But that is a random thought for another day!
