Observing Christmas

"The Church does not superstitiously observe days, merely as days,
but as memorials of important facts.
Christmas might be kept as well upon one day of the year as another;
but there should be a stated day for commemorating the birthday of our Savior,
because there is danger that what may be done on any day,
will be neglected."

Samuel Johnson

Not only should our prayers be for our present needs, but first and foremost of praise for Who God is and what He has done. This time of year should be a time of remembering how God the Father loved us so much that He sent His Son to be born as a man, to give His all so that we too may have life through Him. Can you think of a better reason to celebrate?
