Why can’t they say “Merry Christmas” and mean “Christ” in Christmas?

The reason the Savior, Jesus Christ, was born is that we might know God! Based on the Greatest Story Ever Told, the birth of Jesus Christ is the reason we celebrate Christmas and that has brought us great joy.

While 96 percent of America celebrates Christmas, our culture is eroding, erasing and purging all references to Christmas.

God’s greatest gift to us was His only Son Jesus Christ to save us from all our sins. He was called “Emmanuel” which means “God with us” in all times; good and bad, in tragedy and triumph. “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, goodwill toward men.” (Luke 2:14)

Tidings of great joy, peace to all, and may the true spirit of the season be with you, and your Christmas dreams come true.

A merry Christmas to all!

Jack and Ninerva Sally, Mesa
