Merry XMas......NO, MY CHILD.

Merry XMas! Yeah right! WRONG!!!!!!!

"Daddy, Daddy," 

Don't be mad. I was only about 6 years old. Someone at my school told me that I didn't have to write Christ into the phrase Merry Christmas! They said, "you can save time by writing Merry XMas!" and at age 6, I didn't put 2 and 2 together.

With the slap of his hand across my pants and a terribly disappointed look on his face, my dad taught me the reason to take the time to write Christ. Oh, I knew the Christmas story and the entire biblical history. But, when you're 6, things don't always make sense.

After my father kneeled at my side and with tears in his eyes, shared with my little 6 year old psyche the true story of the birth of Christ, I cried. I'm sorry daddy. I will never let Christ out of Christmas again.

I, today, will never let Christ out of Christmas.

 

                                        MERRY CHRISTMAS Y'ALL!
