Okay, so after hearing so much controversy over the use of the word "Christmas", i thought you might find this interesting. One of my friends was telling me that at his place of work (which shall remain nameless) one of the employees crossed out "Christ" in Christmas that was written on a chalkboard and replaced it with an "X" as in, Xmas. Yikes.
I guess we really don't understand from where we have come and to where are going at the end of our life (hopefully to heaven). So many people see God as an obstacle to their lives instead of a cornerstone. I remember seeing this one movie where the lead character makes a "prayer" to God in these words, "God, you don't have to help me but don't get in my way." holy cow. We'd be in a lot of trouble if God ever got out of our way.
Be sure to wish someone a "Merry Christmas."
