Quick answer "YES".
Is Christmas just a word?
Quick answer "NO".
How to stop Santa Claus, Christmas and your Supreme Being bashing?
No I am not trying to be a Scrooge, Grinch or an Atheist, I am however trying to stop their ruthless assault into our rights as Americans.
We start by doing some homework.
First and most important put your love of your Supreme Being (Jesus Christ, Creator, Father Sky, Great Spirit) where it belongs, back to a day or days closer to the true date of birth from your own bible reading.
One cannot make a lot of money from your breaking bread, praying or celebrating your Supreme Being.
One can only make so much from gifting of a present.
However, mixing them together along with a massive play on our sympathy?
Your bible scripture points to a day around our month of September.
The date was moved some time ago to help big business get more of your money.
I state a fact, "I love Christmas and believe in the persons of Santa Claus".
I also believe in Jesus Christ, we call the Great Spirit or Father Sky.
Santa Claus alias Nicholas bishop of Myra, Alias Sinterklaas is a person or persons of kindness from many countries like Winter Solstice and the jolly Father Christmas.
Yes there are Santa Claus and I for one object the taking of him/her from our youth.
The word Christmas comes from the old Roman Church about a mass to except Christ (Christ-Mass).
The date of December 25th comes from Rome and was a celebration of the Italic god, Saturn, and the rebirth of the sun god.
So, what is wrong with Christmas?
Jesus was not born on December 25th, the true date is sometime in September according to the Scriptures, the Lord never spoke of commemorating his birth but rather commanded us to remember the sacrifice of His suffering and death, which purchased our salvation.
One more thing.
