As a Christian, NOBODY can keep you from celebrating the blessed event of the day we use to celebrate the birth of our king.
There is the secular Christmas, as well. The one you point out as starting on Black Friday.
As a Christian, you should be offended that Christ is being taken out of Christmas.
As an American, you should be offended that retailers are retarded, and trying to take your job away.
I dont expect the secular world to accept the Christian Christmas. I wish they would. However, they won't. We're told people will be offended by Christ. Perhaps much of it is our own fault. Afterall, the gospel is the message of GOOD news; not pompous religiousities.
I would, however, expect the world to accept the secular Christmas, which brings in about 50-65% of a retailers annual income. Retailers need to be reminded that 85-95% of Americans celebrate Christmas.
I always remind retailers that if it were a secular Buddah Day that represented 75% of the income in the final 25% of the year, I'd wish someone a Happy Buddah Day; even tho I myself dont celebrate Buddah.
