If I may... A lot of people complain that Christmas has become too commercial. Jesus is the reason for the season, and they don't want you to forget it. All these presents just get in the way of the true meaning of Christmas. But honestly, who would look forward to it if we didn't get presents? No one really. Sure we'd have a lot of food and could watch football, but it would just look like Thanksgiving with a baby in a barn. Nothing too exciting and would probably get real old real fast. It's the same reason as kids we looked forward to our friends' birthdays: not because you're happy it's someone's birthday, but happy because you get to go to the birthday party. Jesus was born already, so why get excited over his birthday if you're not gettin' a new car with a big red bow on it that your wife never consulted you about before buying? Presents, lights, mall Santas, tree blankets, red and green M & M's, inflatable lawn Grinches, hell even tinsel---it's all good.
