In 1870 President Ulysses Grant declared Christmas a holiday – to Celebrate the birth of CHRIST. It wasn’t created as happy holidays, supposed season of reason or just a holiday for no reason. It was a law created to celebrate the birth of Christ.
Jesus is a man of peace and goodwill, whether a person believes He is the son of God or not. Jesus was real and counted in the Roman Census at the time of his birth. There is no shame in celebrating such a great man, just as we celebrate other great men and definitely He will not harm anyone of any religion or belief, including atheists.
Why is there such fear and protest against Him and what He stands for?
Merry Christmas. Peace and goodwill towards all.
