A friend commented the other day that he was reading the papers, catching up on the news, when he realized he hadn’t read any articles that mentioned the fact that we should be celebrating the birth of Christ this Christmas.
Was this a case of trying to be politically correct? I noted that there have been quite a few Christmas-themed shows and movies on TV. The point he was making was the media is telling us how critical the holiday season is to the economy, but we shouldn’t forget the true reason for the season!
This occasion reminded me of an article published in the Dec. 20, 2001, edition of The Delphos Herald in Delphos, Ohio. That was shortly after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks on America. I saved the article and I thought it would be appropriate to reprint it this week. The author or compiler of the list is not known. A very nice presentation of the list can also be found on the Internet.
