Please stop saying Merry Christmas

I am deeply saddened. Non of my friends could tell me what they would do Christmas morning that would actually Celebrate the birth of Christ. This is the state of the American church? This is Christmas? I am sadden.

Merry Celebration of people expecting others to give them gifts for no apparent reason other then because it's customary to do so.

Merry Celebration of saying the name of God's son devoid of any remembrance of why it matters that he came to earth.

Merry Celebration of people feeling the massive pressure to live up to unreasonable demands of friends and family.

Merry Celebration of Santa and other fictional characters who have nothing to do with Christ.

Merry Celebration of the Winter Break.

Merry Celebration of the biggest shopping days of the year.

Merry Celebration of people who don't want us to mention Christ, well then don't take a holiday. On a side not if you don't like Abraham Lincoln then don't celebrate his birthday either because that makes just as much sense.

Merry Celebration of getting way over committed at church so we dread this time of year.

Merry Celebration of elaborate programs which totally take the place and also give us an excuse to just talk face to face with people about Christ. I know I'm crazy.

Merry Celebration of standing in line to return things because people I expected to get me gifts, got me the wrong thing. What were they thinking.

Merry Celebration of special holiday music releases by recording artist who could never be accused of knowing Christ the rest of the year.

Merry Celebration of I think I made a point here and I think I'm not the only one that feels this way.

Please stop saying Merry Christmas, and no I don't expect people at stores to say merry Christmas to me instead of Happy fact I prefer that they don't unless they really want to acknowledge Christ, but really does he have anything to do with this celebration?

Jesus should sue for Copy Right infringement?

So I'm sad about it. How do you feel?
