Is your celebration of Christmas magnifying or covering the Truth of Christmas? Stop for just a moment and think with me. Much of what we know of Christmas – the celebration of Christmas – is of a secular nature and because of that the true meaning of Christmas is often and easily obscured.
In fact, a “…Pew survey found that religious and non-religious Americans are relatively similar in their celebrations of the Christmas holiday, and that both cultural and religious observers were just as likely to gather with family, exchange gifts and take part in another popular Christmas tradition–Santa Claus.” In other words, Christians and non-Christians tend to celebrate Christmas in the same way!?!?
