Christians must learn to stick to celebrating the birth of Jesus as a holy day. Christmas is not a holiday in the modern sense. Celebrating a generic holiday at the end of the year is a good idea for the entire world. To take a short break from work before starting over in January. But, in the midst of it all, you should keep a religious observation and remembrance of Jesus’ birth. For example, if your father’s birthday falls on the same day as your country’s Independence Day celebrations. You do not have to reject or despise the national holiday. However, when everyone is celebrating their independence. You are commemorating your father’s birthday. The world does not need to change its mind and abandon a generic end-of-the-year holiday. You must learn to stick to celebrating the birth of Christ. Teach your children the significance of Christmas.
The Christian-owned retailer Hobby Lobby has a tradition of reminding people everywhere about the real meaning of Christmas and Easter. They do this with a special message in their triennial series of annual newspaper advertisements. It all started in 1995, when company founder David Green was reading through Christmas ads, including ones for his own business. David Green noticed the lack of any testimony in the newspaper ads that reflected the true meaning of the holiday. There was no religious content in the commemorations. Today, Hobby Lobby runs Christ-centred ads on Easter, Independence Day and Christmas, celebrating the “real meaning” of the holidays.
David Green’s first newspaper ad for Christmas in 1996 included the following message: “As you celebrate this Christmas season in the warmth of family and home, may you be drawn to the Savior; He who left the beauty of Heaven on our behalf and became like us, that we might become like Him. If you know Jesus as your Savior, then this season already has a special meaning. If you do not, we encourage you to find a Bible-believing church in your community, and to discover a relationship this Christmas with the God who loves you more than you can begin to imagine.”
