Why is Christmas a month+ long celebration of the birth of Christ? While important, is not the "day of days." But the death and resurrection, which saves our souls and allows us entrance into Heaven, is a single day with a few good songs, a good sermon, and then more often than not, we go out to eat, go home and find some candy filled eggs, then call it a day and do not even return to church? Do we not have things backwards? This is not another Christmas bash thread. I do Christmas. Tree, stockings, etc., etc. It just seems to me we are putting the emphasis in the wrong place.
