Christmas begins with Christ

        What does Christmas mean to you?  Is it Santa, gifts, shopping, or family gatherings?  As the caption says, 'Christmas begins with Christ.'  Everything you associate with Christmas is just nothing without the Savior's birth.
        Our culture and society does so much to take Christ out of everything.  I think it's especially offensive at Christmas time.  Sometimes when my hand is tired of typing, I am tempted to type 'X-mas' but I reject that thought and don't do it.  Christ is what it is all about.  I support the effort to say 'Merry Christmas', not 'Happy Holidays.'  Nativity scenes should be allowed anywhere, including at the government buildings.  Who is offended?  God mostly by our lack of acknowledging His greatest gift of all.
