Let’s celebrate Christ

LETTER

I would like to know if this Christmas we are going to see the words Merry Christmas put on our shop windows in town. I also hope there will be a Christmas tree and decorations for Christmas.

There are some members of our community who don’t like the word Christmas. I would like to remind people that the reason we have Christmas is to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, so logic should tell us Jesus Christ is the reason for the season. If we take Christ out of Christmas then we have no Christmas . . . and if those members of our community think that Christ can be taken out of Christmas, they are sorely mistaken.
