where are you christmas?

I was talking to a co-worker and we agreed that the month of December is nothing more than a blur. It's four weeks of parties, church programs, shopping for THE perfect gift, mounds and mounds of gift wrap and then if there's time, we reflect on the real meaning of December 25. We become so caught up in ways the world says to celebrate Jesus' birth that we lose sight of what's really important. It seems with each year, the push for Santa Claus becomes more and more imminent. We keep hearing the politically correct "Happy Holidays" versus "Merry Christmas." All of it does nothing but attempt to pull the focus from the whole reason as to why we're celebrating!! Saying all of that to say, may we not become so bogged down in our busy schedules that we neglect to remember what transpired some 2,000 years ago in a tiny stable.
