ASHLAND — Has Christmas lost its meaning?

Has Christmas lost its meaning? Is it just about toys for the children or gifts under the tree? It seems that way.

Whatever happened to the true meaning of Christmas, the birthday of the Christ child?

I bet if you ask a child or even some adults why we celebrate Christmas, they could not tell you. For many, it is just a special day when they get a lot of toys and presents.

 Santa Claus has replaced Christ.  You rarely hear the greeting “Merry Christmas!” anymore. Now its; “Happy Holidays.” 

The holiday we just celebrated is Christmas. Let’s not forget it.
