This evening after a Church function my wife and I decided to drive through several neighborhoods to view Christmas decorations as we used too do every Christmas Season when our children and grandchildren were small. It has probably been 4 or 5 years at least since we had done such. We drove around for about 2 hours I was astonished and amazed at how few decorations both Christian and secular that we saw compared to the few short years. We live in an area of a hundred thousand people and I would estimate that we saw about 20 to 25% to maybe less compared to what we saw a few years ago. I remarked to my wife that a small percent of this decline was due to a stagnant economy but most of it was due to just a downright deemphasizing of Christmas in our present culture and. secular world. Have any of you taken notice of this?
