I was wandering through the various forums that I have been known to frequent, and ran across an interesting website. Each Christmas we go through the usual pro/anti-Christmas wars, as we witness the disappearance of the traditional “Merry Christmas” greeting in the stores. One of the participants in the forum mentioned that he had recently set up a web site that listed businesses that still say “Merry Christmas” during the Christmas season. The name of the site, appropriately, is “The Merry Christmas Club”, and they have two easy to remember URL’s (website addresses, both URL’s forward to the same place):
During the pro/anti-Christmas wars each season, we have the usual debates about companies banning the Salvation Army and other Christian traditions and symbols, while still encouraging you to spend money in their stores… While boycotts are usually ineffective, I found this “Merry Christmas Club” spin on Christmas to be a positive message, for a positive season. They are currently focusing on South Carolina, but they are interested in expanding. I hope they do… I like the message.
On a different note, I will blog a bit about the election later, but for now our prayers are with the President-elect, even though we opposed many of the liberal worldly causes that he supports. The Bible says to pray for your leaders.
I think this “Merry Christmas Club” is a nice positive message to start off the season, and I pray that this friend’s website is a blessing and grows.
Yours in Christ,
