Most Christians, if they celebrate American Christmas festivities at all, have to deal with the amount of materialism that goes on with this holiday. Recent years, we have had to endure government and groups like the ACLU as they strip every last meaning of Christmas from a Traditional Christian celebration.
It’s been interesting on Facebook as Miranda and her friends have discussed how to teach children about Christmas gift without going overboard and losing the true meaning. One of the points discussed was this Christmas gift strategy here.
As I went to pick up Laura today at CVS, I found this on the wrapper in the Christmas candy aisle.
In SANTA we trust? Just another way to take God out of Christmas, and gee, in a bold push of materialism, look at all those zeros.
I hope people don’t buy the candy.
