This is inspired by the recent post entitled “Christmas – Our True Inheritance” over at Amanda’s website, “sharing truths”, which I highly recommend to you all. It got me thinking hard about Christmas this year and I was surprised at how annoyed I was about the whole situation.
I am no scrooge, and I love Christmas, but something is very wrong with how we celebrate it and why. Ultimately Christmas is a commemoration of the birth of Jesus (regardless of when the specific date was).
Nowadays Christmas has become primarily about Santa and the giving of gifts. So, to re-iterate the title of this post, when did Santa take primacy over Jesus?
