Preparing For Christmas
Everywhere we go we see signs at this time of the year, letting us know how many shopping days are left until Christmas.
Every Year that goes by we are reminded of how to be "politically correct" in regard to the "Holidays".
Now we wouldn't want to offend anyone now would we
Can't put a creche up at work, now certain places can't have a "Christmas Tree".
Well I am offended and that doesn't matter though, does it?
Most Christians would agree with me that "Christmas" is not celebrated correctly
Heck, most Catholics don't prepare properly either and get caught up in the materialism of the Season
Prepare for the coming of the Lord.
What happened to "good old prayer"
Do we have Advent Wreaths in our homes and a Jesse Tree possibly?
Those are much more important than those despicable blow up lawn decorations that I despise
I tell people that I wish I had one of those dart shooters and every lawn displaying those despicable sights I could pop them as I drive by, putting a whole new meaning to "drive by shootings", lol
Oh and if I see "Merry X-Mas" I just want to scream!!!!!
I suggest that we establish family prayer and maybe on Christmas day having a cake and singing "Happy Birthday to Jesus". Let's give our children the right message.
Here below just gives some things that you and your family can do to prepare for the birth of Our Savior
Fish Eaters has some great stuff. alos there are feast days to be observed and don't forforget that Christmas doesn't end after we open our gifts on Christmas Day
Don't take those trees down yet!
