We need to Keep Christmas!!

In a world that seems not only to be changing, but even to be dissolving, there are tens of millions of us who want Christmas to be the same with the same old greeting, “Merry Christmas,” and no other.
We long for the abiding love among men of good will which the season brings… believing in this ancient miracle of Christmas with its softening, sweetening influence to tug at our heart strings once again.
We want to hold on to the old customs and traditions because they strengthen our family ties, bind us to our friends, make us one with all mankind for whom the Child was born, and bring us back again to the God Who gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have “everlasting life.”
So we will not “spend” Christmas or “observe” Christmas. We will “keep” Christmas – keep it as it is… in all the loveliness of its ancient tradition. May we keep it in our hearts, that we may be kept in its hope.
