    "Because it is Christmastime. And for me, that still means it’s ultimately all about the birth of the Baby Jesus. A birth which to me, still signifies, joy, hope, peace and redemption."

    I said that and say that as one who deeply respects anyone’s right to believe in any faith or no faith. Hopefully, whether they believe or not, they will still endeavor to practice the "Golden Rule" while on this earth.

    While I do enjoy the many secular trappings of Christmas – Santa Claus, Christmas trees, homes and streets decorated – the true meaning of the holiday still comes down to the birth of that little baby now 2021 years ago.

    My personal relationship with that Baby Jesus began when I was but 5 years old. While in school, they were selling Christmas knickknacks on a small table in the hallway. Within them, I spotted a tiny plastic Nativity scene with Mary, Joseph and the Baby Jesus. For some reason, as soon as I looked at it, I was deeply touched by the smiling face of that little Baby Jesus. Something about it instantly brought me great personal comfort.

    I do believe.

    And to think that on a competing site they actually censored this well balanced, hopeful, and personal opinion of what Christmas meant to them.
