I do like egg nog. One of the great things about this season (that is, about winter) is the presence of that wonderful concoction on our grocery stores’ shelves. But I don’t like Christmas. Yes, I am a Christian. No, I do not like Christmas.
My apologies that I have been lax this year — normally I have a post or two about “Why I do not keep Christmas” or somethig of that nature, but things have been rather crazy this year and as my blogging, in general, has taken a hit, so has this particular flavor of post.
And today, I don’t plan to make up for it much, in that I have so much to do that I can not in good conscience spend much more time on this post than I have already. So, let me take the easy way out, if you will. First, let me link to some of what I have written in the past on the subject:
- Christians Shouldn’t Keep Christmas
- Christmas… WWJD?
- New archaeological find reminds what Christmas IS and ISN’T…
Then I have written a couple of posts that at least touch on the subject:
(OK, I included the last one only because I like the reference to the Andy Williams song.)
And — last but not least — let me link to a nice, recent commentary by Mr. Gary Ehman on the Living Church of God website that uncovers the truth and the lie about the “Rotund Red One”:
So, while I’m all for egg nog, Christmas is a “no no”. I love and respect the living Jesus Christ too much to allow myself or my family to have anything to do with Christmas.
Have a great Thursday (and let’s just leave it at that). 🙂
