Merry Christmas to all.


Happy Tuesday 912 Project.  Like the rest of my Christian friends, I can hardly believe that in a mere 48 hours, we’ll all be celebrating Christmas; the birth of our Lord, Jesus Christ, the reason for the season.  The one whose unmatchable name in all of history is included in the name of the day….Christmas Day.  Wow!  How powerful and awesome is His glorious name.  The very mention of it brings some men and nations to their knees, and lifts others to unimaginable heights.

So much occurs around this day.  While it is commercialized beyond belief, insane political correctness causes many of the same companies that want our dollars to choose never to utter the simple phrase “Merry Christmas” anywhere in theirs stores.  One might expect to see Snowmen, wreaths, Santa Clauses, and many other items that have come to suggest Christmas, but not Christmas.  The signs say “Happy Holidays,” “Season’s Greetings,” “Happy Hanakwanzamas,” and other such watered down nonsense.

Before I’m accused of being intolerant or anything like that, let me shamelessly and proudly confess it right here and now.  I am in fact intolerant of anyone who believes that any majority should acquiesce to the contrary thinking of any minority, regardless of the issue.  I will write more on that in another entry, but for today, let us rejoice in this wonderful season.

After the toys, clothes, jewelry, and other items are put away, Christmas dinner is consumed, and we are settled into the warmth of gathered friends and family; let us all take a moment to remember the real reason we celebrate.  We have a Heavenly Father who loves us so much, He allowed His only son to bear the entire burden of our sin for all time and take what we rightly deserve.  What an amazing and undeserved gift!  All He asks is that we accept it, just as we would any gift under the tree.  It’s ours for the taking, right there, all the time; just say yes and thank you.  How liberating!

It is my hope and prayer that all of you experience the wonder and amazement of Christmas today, tomorrow, and everyday.  Have a great, joy filled, and very, very, Merry Christmas.  Since I love the sound of that, I’ll repeat it several times.  Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas.

God Bless you all, and God Bless America.

    I’m in sales, and we are dictated to by our corporate office to say “Happy Holidays” rather than “Merry Christmas”, out of a basic fear that such a heinous offense might cause our customer to cancel an order, or not sell a product from our catalog on our behalf. I’ve always played along — because, quite frankly, the corporate office keeps my kid in shoes. If one of my customers said “Happy Holidays” to me first, it was safe and non-controversial to just repeat it back to them, and go on about our conversation. Shortly after Thanksgiving this year, I noticed that more often than not, if my customer beat me to the greeting, they were saying “Merry Christmas” first. The first couple of times, I’m ashamed to say I was taken aback by it — not because I was offended, but because I was so happy that someone had the “intestinal fortitude” to throw corporate caution to the wind, and speak what they believed. It brought me out of my shell, and I started saying it as well. And do you know what? Everyone I said it to smiled a little bigger than I ever remember seeing them smile. This entire season, I was only corrected by one customer who was Jewish, but she wasn’t offended at all — so, I just said “Happy Hanukkah”, and she said “Merry Christmas” to me. Just like the environmental movement, the PC movement has done a great job at fixing a problem that didn’t really exist in the first place. When did our skin become so thin?
