Reader: Put Christ back in Christmas 


I cherish memories of my past Christmases. This week I viewed the Festival of Lights parade on TV. So many children attended, and I wonder what their memories will be after an evening of Santa, snowmen, polar bears, the Grinch and bands playing music with NO traditional carols.

What is Christmas? My parents taught me it was about the most special event in the history of the world. Today, children will most likely believe that the holiday is about getting stuff, but not the real gift. I guess the Grinch has indeed stolen Christmas! Viewing the festival made me sad. Let's give our children the true joy of Christmas. It's long past time to put Christ back in Christmas.
