What is the reason for the season?

With the holiday season in full swing, so many things get lost in the shuffle. Let’s just make sure it’s not Jesus.

  • Some focus on the date Jesus is born and not why he was born
  • Others say a pagan holiday was adopted to make it more palatable
  • Others say it’s too commercial

Yet those in favor of the holidays say

  • With all the talk of Christmas, it’s the time when people bring up Jesus more than any other time.
  • There are so many stories of people thinking of others first at this time of year. How can that be bad.
  • It’s the time of year when families can get together.

What holiday traditions do you share that puts Jesus first. Giving thanks before eating? Christmas music at church?
