It isn't about the children--it's about the Child;
It isn't about the gifts--it's about the Gift;
It isn't about the christmas tree--it's about the cursed tree;
It's not about Christmas--it's about Christ.
This Christmas season, may we remember that the only reason we can celebrate the Christ Child is because of the Sacrificial Gift He became by hanging on that cursed tree--the cross. There's no Christmas without Easter. And there's no Easter without Good Friday.
