    If Christmas was cancelled would you miss it?

    Or would you be happy to see the back of it and all the hype and pressure to spend money.

    How, pray tell, would one "cancel" Christmas? You'd have to have basically unanimous support from the population in order to nullify an entire holiday (which is how the Puritans did it), and considering most folks in the U.S. are rather big fans of the holiday, it's not going anywhere any time soon.

    Now, if reality suddenly had a brain fart and Christmas was somehow cancelled, I'd miss it. If only for the decorations and the actual good Christmas movies. It's the only excuse I have for powering through It's a Wonderful Life, Die Hard, The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya, and Home Alone!

    Christmas is the celebration of the birth of Christ. If Christmas was canceled it would mean Christ was never born because if we just stopped celebrating the birth of Christ it wouldn't mean it didn't happen. Christmas would still come even though we don't pay attention to it.

    Without the birth of Christ there would be nobody to pay for our sins. We wouldn't be able to repent and we would all go to hell. God would lose all of his children to Satan.

    It would be absolutely terrible if Christmas was canceled.

    Christmas WILL NEVER be cancelled.  After all, people, religionist, spiritual, &/or ethical, respect Christmas for its symbology of love, peace, and goodwill to all humans.  Christmas symbolizes the higher aspects of the human ideal. 

    Christmas is the MOST beautiful and magnificent of all seasons.  Most people are kinder to each other during this season than they are at any time of the year.  It is also the season of ambience and gaiety.  There is something about Christmas that is exhilarating to the multillionth degree.  In essence, there is NO season like Christmas.

    Christmas is the season for children and the children in us.  There is nothing like Christmas that resurrects our childhoods, what we once were-the youth and innocence that was not corrupted yet.  It represents goodness and hope for the future.   

    If one day Christmas is NO more, there will be a sadness among humankind.  Winter will be gloomy instead of beautiful.  This absence of Christmas means the absence of hope in the minds of humankind.  The world would be one dark, dismal place as there will be a MASSIVE VOID.
