Reblog: Will the Grinch Steal Christmas This Year
Once again, Matt Appling is listening to God. Read his great words about “The War on Christmas”:
The Advent season has officially begun.
Cheri and I put our tree up and the decorations. Our shopping is almost done, save that one difficult person to shop for. Our soundtrack for the season is the record Vince Guaraldi created for Charlie Brown. For the next month, I’ll try to not let the laundry pile up in the chair next to the Christmas tree.
You know what I’m talking about. We’ll hear a few stories from around the country – lawsuits forcing Nativities to be taken down, or retail stores that forbid employees to wish shoppers “Merry Christmas.”
And a bunch of Christians will scream and shout that those godless heathen Jesus-haters are taking Christmas away.
It almost seems that How the Grinch Stole Christmas is coming true.
So what battlegrounds in the war for Christmas matter this year? How will the fight to save Christmas turn out?
