    More than two-thirds (67%) of Americans think that Christmas is more about Jesus Christ than about Santa Claus. The survey of 1000 American adults conducted on Dec. 9-10 by Rasmussen Reports demonstrates that Americans consider Christmas a day of religious significance more than a day of bustling consumerism.

    Despite public school trends of focusing more on a Winter Holiday than an active Christmas celebration, the survey also exposed that a whopping 75% of American adults believe that Christmas should be celebrated in public schools. Just 15% of those surveyed do not feel Christmas should be celebrated in public schools.

    The survey also revealed when shopping at stores during Christmas time, two-thirds (66%) of Americans prefer to see signs that say "Merry Christmas" while only 21% prefer "Happy Holidays."

    Another interesting survey question:

    Do you know that Christmas is short for Christ's Mass?

    So what?-- Another good survey point.

    Even so, come, Lord Jesus.

    The Mass of Christ is not spin but rather an abomination on the order of idolatry--a bloodless sacrifice by sinful men.

    Have a happy crucifixion-seems an oxymoron for sure.

    Now what?

    Peace,

    I prefer Christ in every day of my life.....not just man made holidays. Any day I can set aside to glorify my lord, show charity to those in need, love my family is a good day for me. Make it a day to give back, show some joy & praise the Lord.

    How is displaying the linguistic accuracy of the word "negative spin"? No offense (I pray) Rev, but that's a nonsense comment.
