A: Thanks for writing to us on this Christmas day!
Blessed greetings to you, too!
the day that the Christian world celebrates the
birth of Jesus. It is such a powerful date that
much of the world stops what it is doing and
pays homage to the Prince of Peace. Even though
the celebration has been made "unholy" by those
who pander to crass materialism, those who love
Jesus understand its real significance. It
remains a very holy day to them... and
evidently to you, too. The "reason for the

We here at TruthBook
are all about Jesus, as you may have
noticed...we celebrate him daily on our pages,

then, we are more than happy to join with the
world whenever it celebrates the arrival of the

I hope that this
reply eases your mind somewhat about our aim in
celebrating Christmas Day. For our part, we'd
like to keep it holy and we are determined to
continue to proclaim our joy at the miracle of
the incarnated Son of God born as the helpless
child of Bethlehem...no matter when we
celebrate, it seems always appropriate to
recognize and agree on the FACT of Jesus'
