For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: His name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Isaiah 9:6
WeSayChristmas.net was launched in the fall of 2009 to promote use of the word Christmas on TV, movies, radio, print advertising, Internet, and in the public forum. WeSayChristmas.net would like to recognize retailers and businesses that value the word "Christmas" in their advertising. We would like to encourage those who have replaced "Christmas" with the word "Holiday" to remember that Jesus remains "the Real Reason for the Season."
We are concerned with the growing numbers of honest Americans who are being persuaded to use the expression happy holidays under the guise of inclusion and tolerance. Frankly, Christmas is a Christian Holiday, and America was founded on Christian principles that secularists continue to attack. They oppose our faith and won't be satisfied until they have successfully erased the real message of Christmas.
The message of Christmas cannot be told without Christ's redeeming work on the Cross. Without the Cross there is no point in celebrating this day.
Isaiah 7:14 tells us how God would become a man, "Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel(meaning God with us)."
The gospel of Luke Chapter 2 verse 11 confirms Isaiah's prophecy, "For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord."
We are told of how his sacrifice would redeem sinful man, "But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed" -Isaiah 53:5.
As a response to this message we are called to follow Christ's example, "And walk in love, as Christ has also loved us, and hath given himself for us as an offering and a sacrifice to God . . ." Eph. 5:2
If there are other celebrations of faith near or on December 25th then we should acknowledge them respectfully, but if you're talking about Christmas Trees, Christmas Cards, Christmas Gifts and most importantly the birth of our Saviour, Jesus Christ, well then you need to call it what it is, Christmas. If this is your belief please help us keep Christ in Christmas.
Blessings and Merry Christmas.
