Little late to the party but Christmas has been turned into nothing but commercialization for the vast majority. I see it as just as a celebration of the birth of our Lord and Savior on a day that can be universally recognized, the winter solstice. If you have kids or grandkids its a great time for gifts to show how much you love and appreciate them. Husbands, wives or significant others, why not? But for me getting being much older the whole running out to buy gifts that someone may or may not like has no purpose. It actually turned into giving and receiving gift cards only. What the hell is the point? I just wish everyone a Merry Christmas and just buy 1 or 2 gifts for ones closest to me and pretty much tell everyone else no gifts. Besides, don't some "re gift", giving away the stuff they never wanted or desired? Its just better spending the time with those close to you, that is a gift that is appreciated, at least for me.
^^^The above is just an opinion.

Not saying Christ was born on the 25th, but that's the day we celebrate his coming. We worship God on that day (and yes, every day).

I actually think it's appropriate that we take over holidays meant to worship gods, and we use them to instead worship the One True God.

Toyotathon is next.
God said specifically, NOT TO DO this, and called this an abomination.

I'm neither passing judgement on those who do this, nor condemning anyone, as the Apostle Paul says not to judge others on what days, moons, or Sabbaths one keeps, however, I personally don't do this because God has specifically said to NOT do this.

You do as you wish, but God may have something to say about it on judgement day. That's all I'm saying.
