Merry Christmas? Happy Holidays? Who cares?

Bob Mann updates us on the “War on Christmas”

Something Like the Truth

By Robert Mann

I come from a long line of Christian evangelicals. I grew up among people devoted to saving souls, compelled by their faith to spread the “Good News.” My father was a preacher who believed in the power of Christ to redeem the world. Sometimes, members of his various churches would comb neighborhoods, knock on doors, ask complete strangers about their faith and invite them to church.

Yet, like the Puritans of old, we forsook the religious side of Christmas. Following the New Testament command of St. Paul, “Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon,” there were no Christmas hymns sung in the congregations of my youth. If you had attended my dad’s unadorned church the Sunday before Christmas, you would have seen no signs of the holiday season. There was no Christmas Eve service.
