    It's Called Christmas.

    It is about the birth of Christ.  You can't change that!  I think it's disgusting that I just saw, "I'd like to hear a non-biblical Christmas story." Really??  CHRIST-mas.  Yeah, but you'll be the first one down by the tree in the morning ripping...

    What Christmas Is Really All About

    Celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ.   This is a great time of the year to talk about, think about and refect on what Jesus Christ accomplished for those who believe and do Romans 10:9 and 10.
