Watch this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IAckfn8yiAQ&NR=1
It is really cheesy and the editing is pretty horindus (yes, I know how to spell that...it was in reference to the video. You'll see what I mean...lots of grammar and spelling errors...not to mention poor color choice and such). :)
Anyway, it is a good message, though the cheese factor is high. Let's all remember the reason for Christmas...Christ...and not leave Him out of it. The entire reason Christmas even exists is because of Jesus. No, we don't know when He was born. However, it is nice to have a day set aside to specifically think about that and praise God for giving Jesus to the world. We should think about it daily, but we all fall short of this, I'm sure, so it's nice to have a day centered around such a great sacrifice of Jesus coming down from glory to live on the earth...to be tempted...to feel pain.
Hope you enjoy the message of the video.
For those of you out there that celebrate different holidays, I hope you enjoy those times with family and friends, as well. Next to celebrating Jesus, time with family and friends is the most important thing about the holiday season.
Oh, and by the way...I don't get offended by "happy holidays" and I sometimes say it in light of the entire holiday season encompassing Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year's.
If anyone has any questions or comments in support of OR contrary to what I've written, I would love to hear them. Seriously, if you don't agree, let me know instead of just reading this and thinking that I'm an idiot...
