The Meaning of Christmas–Peanuts Style

Linus said it best:

Such wisdom from the mouths of a babe. Fitting for the miracle of the Incarnation, which allowed for the Savior of the world to come to the earth born as an innocent child to a faithful mother not in a palace but a manager. Good grief!

Yet that child was a Prince of Peace who redeemed humanity.

And a host of angels sang in praise of the newborn king.

“Winter Festival” Wackiness

Winter Festival Cartoon

For scores of years, there have been a squabble amongst secularists to prevent communities from celebrating the Federal holiday of Christmas on public property.  Religious references have been minimized to a holiday tree, Frosty the Snowman and Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer.  School systems have abolished the Christmas vacation in lieu of the “Winter Break”.  If these anti-traditional forces had their druthers, perhaps even public mentioning of Christmas would be prohibited and we would simply celebrate the “Winter Festival”.
To try to accommodate all beliefs, some municipalities have tried to incorporate symbols of many faith systems during the holiday season.  So it was not uncommon to see a Chanukah menorah, later a Muslim Crescent and in some places displays celebrating the holiday for atheists (sic).  Alas, in Santa Monica, California, their half century tradition of holiday displays became too cumbersome due to political correctness, so it was abolished on public space.  But Santa Monica churches found a loophole  which allows for live displays. So now both Christians and atheist displays are permitted, as long as there is a live person. Time will tell how man convicted atheists will commit to manning their displays.
Since ’tis the season to be jolly, while embracing politically correct celebrations of the “Winter Festival” (a.k.a. Christmas or the Feast of the Incarnation), it is time for a rousing chorus of “Have a RamaHanaKwanzMas!
