SANTA FE, N.M. — I could not find a “holiday card” in Santa Fe, or at shops in Albuquerque, Dallas or New York City, where I also looked, that had anything at all to do with the actual birth of Jesus Christ, for which “the holiday” (Christmas, remember?) was named, and has for millennia been celebrated in Western civilization.
I counted 96 cards on display at one place featuring snowy winter scenes; cheery animals in scarves and mittens; wreaths and bells; sleighs full of toys; and the guy whose birthday many humans now believe falls on Christmas, namely Santa Claus; but not one depicted Him, or the star, or the manger or anything remotely associated with the original topic of Christ-mas! Not even one!
Even “Merry Christmas” is now being replaced with the innocuous “Happy Holidays” so as not to draw attention to His name or burn the ears of anyone who cannot tolerate having to hear it said aloud.
One can freely talk about Nebuchadnezzar, Grover Cleveland and Adolph Hitler, but that notorious guy Jesus must be censored from the pages of history lest someone hear His name!
