There has been over the ages controversy as to the exact time and date of the birth of Christ. Well, that debate maybe earned but one refutable fact is the Christ was born and became man. He must have been born on some day and a season. Some say October others say July yet others at November. There is one commonality … He was born. Let us celebrate His life even as we bicker over the date.
Some say it is an idolatry. As there was pagan god of light which was copied by the Christians and commercialized. This my be partially true but not word for word. Rev. Khan Honeyghan said “Let us just celebrate His life”.
To believers of Christ we say Emmanuel which means God with us.
Merry Christmas to all and good will to all fellow folks.
