Did Christmas survive Christmas?

Christmas Tree

Another Christmas has come and gone and in spite of the best efforts of many to denigrate its spirit, it appears to have survived.  We had those refusing to say Merry Christmas, banning nonsecular holiday decorations, and purging all references to Christ from primary school “holiday” programs, but on the morning of 12/25/15 families across the country woke up to a Christmas tree and gave thanks for their simple blessings as they ate their Christmas meal, Christians and non-Christians alike.  In fact, according to a Pew Research Center survey, Christmas represents a nation-wide event celebrated by 92 percent of the population.

We hope you all had a very Merry Christmas.
