Happy-Birthday-Jesus        Rev. Repriestly: We don’t mean to be Grinch’s this Christmas, but increasing materialism this year shows it is past time for truth about Christmas. The Bible doesn’t specify Jesus’ birthdate, but we do know it was not on December 25th.

Remember ‘Jesus Is The Reason for the Season.’  If you want to tell Him ‘Happy Birthday’ go ahead. But that is part of prayer and worship. It does not necessarily go with gorging food, going into debt to buy gifts, or wild parties.

Cecil Certifier: Actually, for centuries Europeans celebrated winter, cold and snow as part of the Winter Solstice on that date. It was also part of Saturnalia:  “The holiday was celebrated with a sacrifice at the Temple of Saturn, in the Roman Forum, and a public banquet, followed by private gift-giving, continual partying, and a carnival atmosphere that overturned Roman social norms,” says Wikipedia.

Jim Seerfar: Hmm. Sound familiar? Banquets, gift-giving, partying, etc. Like Rev. Repriestly says materialism. This Solstice thing is also connected to astrology star worship. Wikipedia explains: “Winter solstice is an astronomical phenomenon which marks the shortest day and the longest night of the year.”

In ‘History of Yule,’ Lady SpringWolf writes: “The Winter Solstice has been recognized and celebrated for eons by ancient people around the globe. Etymology Online describes Yule as: A heathen feast, later Love-of-Christtaken over by Christianity and from unknown origin. Gaius Valerius Catullus (84 BC– 54 BC) was a Roman poet of the 1st century BC. He describes Saturnalia as: the best of days. . . It was a time of celebration, visits to friends, and gift-giving, particularly of wax candles (cerei), and earthenware figurines (sigillaria).”  Let me ask again, sound familiar?

Ally I. Feermeno and Ida B. Wells: Christians must know what they do and why they do it. Apostle Paul warns: “And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them (Ephesians 5: 11). In 2 Corinthians 2: 11, he talks about Satan deviousness, i.e. Santa moves one letter of his name: “Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices.”

Sarah Newsworthy and Wendy Weathersbee: This blog and our sister site worldscollide-culture-Christianity-endoftime.com writes constantly that in 2014-15, time is coming to an end. So be especially careful during this season when people drive crazily and do other whacky things.

Earlier forecasters assured that few parts of the U.S. will see snow this Christmas.  But now they change their tune, insisting on AccuWeather.com: “A storm bearing gusty winds, torrential rain, snow, thunderstorms and fog will converge on the East and Midwest on Christmas Eve and will likely create major travel delays, both on the roads and at airports.” So try to stay home and be safe!

Dr. Ad Versery and Professor Maleeke: And for goodness sake avoid people who cough, wash and/or sanitize hands constantly, eat healthy foods and avoid so many sweets and get plenty of rest. Diseases and viruses attack our country now.

Inspector Butterman and John J., Jr.: So they have stepped into the over-eating area, we were going to cover. But one more thing, our Web Advisor Taryn at I.E. Plexus.com would not forgive the team if we didn’t remind you to be sure to get one of those wholesale Christian sweatshirts offered in our store. Otherwise, have a Merry, Merry Christmas and feel free to tell Our Lord ‘Happy Birthday’!
