What's Wrong With This Picture?!?!?!?!

I pulled this off of my friend, Crystal's blog on MySpace. She took pictures of the CHRISTMAS parade in Burlington today but look closely at the sign. Have we gone so far as to take anything having to do with CHRIST out of our lives???? It is not a "holiday" parade!! It is a CHRISTMAS parade. It just makes me sick how we are so concerned about being politically correct that we won't make a stand for our Savior who died for us!! And I have been reading how major stores like Wal-Mart, K-Mart and others are taking "Christmas" out of everything. They advertise "Holiday" trees, instead of Christmas trees, and they are supposed to say "Happy Holidays" instead of "Merry Christmas". But I'm sorry.......a "HOLIDAY" Parade?????? We should be ashamed!!! Christmas IS a holiday, but it is so much more! It is a time to recognize the birth of our God, come to earth in human form to take away the sins of the world. Now in honor of His birthday, we want to take His name, and any reference to Him out of all of our "festivities". Tell someone you are starting a petition to have all references of Santa Claus removed from Christmas and people would start a rebellion!! But we stand idly by and let them remove CHRIST from Christmas and never bat an eye.

Well "as for me and my house we will serve the Lord". So you know what that means? That means that we will have a CHRISTMAS tree, with CHRISTMAS ornaments, and CHRISTMAS decorations. We will give and receive CHRISTMAS presents and have CHRISTMAS dinner. We will send CHRISTMAS cards, and sing CHRISTMAS carols. And we will certainly not wish people a "happy holidays" but we will stand with pride and say "MERRY CHRISTMAS". We will ride to look at CHRISTMAS lights and we will read the story of CHRISTMAS from the Bible. And most of all we will give honor and recognition to the One who makes, not only Christmas day possible, but EVERY day possible: Jesus CHRIST.

Oh and by the is only 36 more days until CHRISTMAS. The way things are going though, it wouldn't surprise me at all if Jesus came back before then. But that's ok, because the ones that are left behind won't give Him any credit then either!!
