I went to a Christmas program last night. My friend's children were performing at their school. They all did delightfully well, singing and playing trombone ;)...but I was so thouroughly disgusted with the whole program. It sure made me glad, that I decided to homeschool. There wasn't one hint, or even a little mention of the custom we call "Christianity" or the celebration of the birth of a king. They sang and danced about Kwanzaa and Hannuka and they did some stuff with father time and Chinese New Year with a big scary looking dragon and not even one sidenote about my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. This was a very small town - the sign at their city limits boasts "Good Schools and Good Churches". HA! They don't have either one. A town of only a few hundred people and they can't even sing "Away In A Manger" at a Christmas Program.

I intend to make sure this doesn't happen to my kids. I'm going to make sure they know why we celebrate Christmas. I know that Jesus was born in September (or there abouts), but Dec 25th is the day that the nation set aside to recognize it and now they are trying to renig on the deal. Get your children an Xbox for Christmas but don't teach them the gospels of Christ. Christ - Christmas - Hmmmmm....You think there might be a connection here?

Okay, I'm off my soapbox.

Happy Holidays!

For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

~Isaiah 9:6
