Who doesn’t remember making advent links? I remember making them every Christmas season in school. Since my kids are homeschooled for elementary, I don’t know if they still do this in the public schools. It might not be politically correct anymore. We also used to put on Christmas programs in my public school, and that is what it was called — The Christmas Program — not Holiday Celebration. We would sing Christmas songs, including “Away in a Manger” and all those holy songs. Now I bet they don’t do that. It seems that everyone is trying to take the Christ out of Christmas nowadays — when Christ is what Christmas is all about. Of course, there are other religious celebrations at this time of year, too. So maybe in the school now they celebrate all religions during this season? Which would be cool, too. So long as Christmas is represented as well….without trying to take Christ out of it.
