Secularism and commercialism have tried to silence Jesus at Christmas—or at least shove Him into a corner. Schoolchildren have a Christmas break, but aren't allowed to acknowledge why or even call it a Christmas break. A woman in a store picked up a Christmas-themed religious recording and said, "I can't believe it—the Christians are trying to horn in on Christmas now." I would not for a moment try to take away from your celebration Santa Claus, Scrooge, the Grinch, Miracle on 34th Street or It's a Wonderful Life. Still, we must remember it is His day.
