There are interesting responses to this observance called Christmas.
- There are the nay-sayers, pointing to the roots of a pre-Christian Europe and shouting, “Pagan!”
- There are the secularists who embrace the “Christmas spirit”, seeing it as an inspiration to be extra kind. Be nice. Give to the needy. Surprise and delight children.
- There are those who point to the profound act of God. Somehow, for some reason, an infinite God took on human form and entered our world to save us.
