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!

Hello, Ginny.

Good post. The important thing is to celebrate Advent, but in the spirit of Advent. Don't celebrate Christmas now.

Remember Advent is a penitential season (note that the organ should not be played at Mass in Advent, &c.) Don't decorate your tree until Christmas eve. If you have kids, give presents over all twelve days of Christmas. Make Three kings and St. Nicholas Day and Epiphany BIG feast days in your family!

Thanks for your blogging.

In Domino

PS:


Don't be upset by "X-Mas", it is in truth not disrespectful at all and quite Catholic and ancient. X as an abbreviation for Christ (from the Greek)
like the Chi-Rho, for instance that is used in architecture and the liturgy.

Here is something about it:

Check out this new Traditionalist Catholic band that just released their first album.

From what I heard on the samples site, they sound really good.

Introducing the new Christian National Anthem: Guns & Jesus.
