19 For though I am free from all men, I have made myself a slave to all, so that I may win more. 20 To the Jews I became as a Jew, so that I might win Jews; to those who are under [a]the Law, as under [b]the Law though not being myself under [c]the Law, so that I might win those who are under [d]the Law; 21 to those who are without law, as without law, though not being without the law of God but under the law of Christ, so that I might win those who are without law. 22 To the weak I became weak, that I might win the weak; I have become all things to all men, so that I may by all means save some. 23 I do all things for the sake of the gospel, so that I may become a fellow partaker of it. (emphasis mine)This, I feel, also applies to holidays. When you put someone down for celebrating Christmas or wishing someone Happy Holidays, you are NOT winning people to Christ. You are actually making a spectacle of yourself and running people away from Him.
Remember what you are really celebrating on Christmas. It isn't words but a Savior come to Earth!
So I want to wish all: Merry Christmas!, Happy Holidays! Happy Chanukah! and Merry MESSIAHmas! to one and all!!!!!!!!!!
~ Romans 14.5-6 (CJB)
