Where has Christmas gone?

It's been some time since I have sat down and blogged and I miss it every day.  The problem is, my days are so hectic and my life is so cluttered that blogging has had to take a back burner. 

You know what's great?  I haven't been in the bah humbug spirit as much this week.  Of course, I'm coming close to running low on money, so I'm sure the Grinch in me is sure to rear it's ugly head, but all and all, this has not been a back holiday season. 

Speaking of Holiday... Where has Christmas gone?  I can't for the life of me figure out why people have become so afraid to call Christmas CHRISTMAS???

We seem to no longer have CHRISTMAS parties.  We now have HOLIDAY parties.

Signs no longer say MERRY CHRISTMAS.  They now say HAPPY HOLIDAYS.

Are we really afraid of CHRIST?  Or are we more afraid of hurting someone's feeling who doesn't believe in CHRIST? 

Christmas is about the birth of Christ, plain and simple.  You can't take that out of the holiday.  It is a celebration of his birth.  You can't have one without the other!

So to you, Dear Blog World, I say Merry Christmas, because yes I do want you all to have a happy holiday season, but remember that CHRIST is the reason for the season!

And Aa Merry Christmas to you, too. It is sad to see the change. I am always eager to shop at places that aren't afraid to say it.

We miss you guys.

I agree. When I worked at the elementary school, I wasn't supposed to say Merry Christmas BUT when they said it to me, I replied it right back at them. It's a crying shame!

Don't worry about not being able to blog as much. I've flunked the last few weeks in blogging. Hoping to get back on track real soon.
