Well, not really, but we are supposed to come up with titles that could tie into national stories. I am worried about how commercial Christmas is--earlier and earlier each year. Christmas music started earlier in stores and on the radio--and don't get me wrong, I love those songs and listen to Christmas music all year long. Some of the most uplifting songs are Christmas. When I listen to Mary, Did You Know? I cry. Very moving. But commercially it is being pushed so people will go out and buy. Buy. Buy. We are a consumer economy and so many business HAVE to do well at Christmas to stay afloat.
So how are you keeping Christ in Christmas? I read something about looking at Christmas as a big birthday bash for Jesus. Invite friends and family for a birthday party with a cake and decorations for a birthday. Any gifts giving are favors for the party participants. It turns the focus more on Christ. I like that.
