It makes me sad when I see cards, bill boards, marquees, and signs in store windows with the word X-mas. That’s not even a word. Are they too lazy to write out Christ, or don’t they care?

If it wasn’t for the birth of Jesus Christ, there would be no Christmas. No big family get-togethers to celebrate the season, no tree to decorate with favorite ornaments, or sing carols. No, no Christmas at all.

Let’s show honor, glory and love to Jesus in saying Merry Christmas to everyone — family, friends and acquaintances.
