Christmas Controversy & Opinion Visit Defend Christmas.com Presented by Defend Christmas, this forum covers the difficult topics of the season -- from the famed and fabled War on Christmas to church and state debates to using the star or the angel on the Christmas tree. Modern Christmas celebration has it's complications -- schools are divided, some Christmas light displays are too much, some even argue that it is better to call it a "holiday" tree. Some merchants won't even say "Merry Christmas"! Where there is controversy, there is insanity. Even in Christmas.

More Fuel for the "War on Christmas" Fire

I came across this story this morning. I find it interesting that Christmas is being attacked, and it's mid-February.

But, for those interested in the story:

One of my very dearest friends, who loves Christmas even more than I do, is an atheist. She's even joked that she knows she should say "solstice", but she loves the word "christmas" too much. I know she'd roll her eyes if she saw this video.

Bless her heart, she is trying so hard. Someone should let her know that it freedom of religion not freedom from it that makes this country work so well.
At least she knows that as Christians we celebrate the birth of our Lord on that day. But she is forgetting that many more people also celebrate Christmas who do not believe this.
This is like throwing out the baby with the bath water.
We stole nothing, we celebrate our way and have no problem with others celebrating their way.
If we as Christians can allow others to celebrate the season the way they desire, why can she not have the same respect for us?

Her 15 mins of fame is now up! I'm not even going to give her my precious time. I have many friends who are non christian who respect and celebrate christmas in their own way too and they love it!

I understand the point she is making but I wonder why she is going out of her way to make it (someone wants to make the cover of a newspaper?) ! How can seeing people celebrating joy, peace and love cause anyone such contempt. On that note I would very much like to say to Ms Gaylor .......MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
