“It’s The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year” or so goes the famous song about Christmas. For me I wonder, “Is it really? Why?” Why do we do the things we do and where did it all begin? What does it have to do with the reason Christians celebrate Christmas? How do other countries celebrate Christmas and how did they develop their traditions? There are some really deep issues involved here and I certainly don’t have the answers, but an article in Christianity Today was an eye opening read. Who knew the Puritans outlawed the celebration of Christmas and that Alabama was the first state to make it legal again? Shocking!
