Here's a new spin on the War on Christmas that's new to me....

so apparently now buying too many gifts for your children is the reason why Christ is being taken out of Christmas. because, you know, Jesus only received three gifts so why should any child be entitled to more than he was?

  • Sigh. Why aren't these people so filled with gods love and joy that they can only spread that joy? Oh well maybe because they are spiritually empty and they don't know how to fix it. So sad.

  • I love how it's a war on Christmas, but it's ignored if we mention how Christmas was stolen from a Pagan festival. I guess theft is not as bad as war?

  • That is ridiculous!

  • What a load! Personally, I don't think it's about the gifts, but the commercialism of it all. However, those of us who believe & know the true meaning of the day, will not allow that aspect to deter us from its true meaning.  (reglardless of how many gifts we choose to give our children) And if I dare go one step further, we shouldn't be made to feel ostracized for saying "Merry Christmas." All religions/beliefs are supposed to feel welcome in this country.

  • It's all about gifts and having fun in our house. Christ was never the reason for the season in our home :)

  • What's this war on Christmas you speak of? If you don't let it get to you, it won't. I hear nothing..... I enjoy and live my own life.

  • I've never looked at it like that. I do, however, see in my family the importance on keeping the emphasis on Christ and on giving, rather than the orgy of greed that sometimes seems part of the commercialization of the holidays.

  • Well...they sort of have a point. We have become a very materialistic society. However, that has nothing to do with Christ and Christmas.

  • We are a Christian family. My kids get more than 3 gifts and I've never had a problem with it. They know what/why we are celebrating and I've taught them to be grateful for what they have and receive.
