Happy Holidays. It’s very subtle. It was just another Christmas greeting, so what’s the big deal? It took years to recognize the erosion caused by “Happy Holidays.” Waves do not just come in and wipe away the beach overnight – it happens gradually. Happy Holidays was very subtle which made it harder to recognize the danger.
I admit I’ve said Happy Holidays in the past and even sent out a Christmas card with that greeting many, many years ago. I didn’t realize that I was slowly being separated from Christ by eliminating Him when I choose that greeting over “Merry Christmas.” Then, several years ago during the Christmas season, I finally saw what was happening. I noticed that Happy Holidays was everywhere and Merry Christmas was disappearing. It hurt my heart to see the erosion of Merry Christmas and I was determined to eliminate Happy Holidays from my celebration.
As a mom and a Christian, I want to teach my children the true meaning of Christmas. I’m always aware that kids learn by example, so my home and life need to reflect the love of Jesus in all I do. We don’t just say Merry Christmas, we live it by doing all we can to the Glory of God. Our family says Merry Christmas in word and deed and that is our mission at The Little Card Company. Say Merry Christmas with us this year.
Blessings from Charlene!
