Yes, Ray, Christmas has been hijacked as all of the holidays have, by greedy corporate interests who want nothing more than for us to spend money we don't have on their stuff. ITs a material world, for sure. And Easter is all about eating hams too and buying little bunnies and chicks and ducks to throw away later. Our culture is secular and it has creeped into the materialistic "church" too.
I think we all understand that many of our customs and holidays originated in pagan religion. Kids do not understand this and I don't recommend being like a Jehovah's witness and not celebrating holidays. One can use wisdom though.
Think of how the poor feel who cannot indulge like most of us, that's not very God honoring either.
