It’s inevitable this time of year. People seem obsessed with “putting Christ back into Christmas”. They seem to mean by this that we should put Nativity scenes up instead of Christmas trees, and that we should rant incessantly about spelling the holiday “Christmas” instead of “xmas”. Soon we will be asked to share memes if we agree that Jesus is the reason for the season.
Even now, perhaps there are some that are concerned that I might be taking too light a view on changing Christmas to “xmas”. No, I’m not. “X” is simply a Greek chi, and for 2,000 years it has stood for the name “Christ.” Everyone relax.
I agree that at many times the holiday seems overdone, vain and aesthetically offensive. Christians are not immune to this charge. There are only so many times that you can hear “Jingle Bell Rock” or “Mary did you know?”
