Years ago I DID stop all that Christmas stress to reconnect to Christ -- not to the child Christ but to the exalted living Christ
who came to live in me. People think they cannot give up or even cut down on
the many traditional activities -- but it CAN be done; and there are many others
who can joyfully testify to this! After all, why celebrate His birthday
with a lot of busy preparation if you're not even willing to spend time with HIM?
