Christmas allows for more time visiting with friends, lots of music, pot lucks and time out of the normal routine activity.  But is it a Christian holiday?

After I became a Christian, back in 1970, I started reading the Bible, and loved the Word of God.

There is very, very little resemblance between the excess of materialistic madness, overindulgence and frenzied activity of this holiday, that resembles the story of the birth of Jesus Christ, that wonderful story of the long-awaited Saviour of mankind.  Peace on earth, good-will toward men is a reality only as we live in the light of the truth of God.

This is a good time to slow down, sit down, and read that Book of all books and let God speak to us.
