Does it matter to you? Why?
Is it because we want to share the incredible gift that we celebrate… the Incarnation of God the Son into a fully human being while maintaining His full deity so that we may have a perfect saviour.
Is it because we fear losing the religious / cultural Christmas Americana?
Perhaps our energy would be better invested in actually living a biblical Christmas spirit that engaged people in the real story of Jesus birth ratger engaging the media and politicians in a battle over what people say.
I always say Merry Christmas and have yet to have anyone correct me.
I wonder if Jesus is concerned about this aspect of the American culture war?
