Forgive me for jumping in here, Dai, when your comment was addressed to Ethan, but I'm sure he would agree with me that there is nothing anti-Christian about objecting to the commercialism and hype of Christmas as it is "celebrated" in our secular society. On the contrary, I agree with you wholeheartedly, and I'm certain that Ethan does as well.Originally posted by dai bread:
I don't mean to be anti-Christian here, EJA...
From a biblical standpoint, today's Christmas bears little, if any, resemblance to the Christian celebration which it portends to be - the celebration of the birth of our Savior.
Fortunately, most of the music of Christmas, especially the classics, was actually written in recognition of that event.
