Mistletoe Defending Christmas

At the risk of sounding like a salesman only out for money, I truly do hope to bring exactly the words of my title to light through my novel, Nicholas: The Fantastic Origin of Santa Claus. The historical Saint Nicholas was a devout Christ-follower and many of the “pagan” symbols of Christmas have endured so long because they can so simply be turned to commemorate the greatest night in all history, the night God became flesh in the form of the Savior of mankind, Jesus Christ, the Son of God! Amen. Hopefully readers who are naysayers of Christmas may feel disinclined to spend so much energy bashing a holiday the celebrates the birth of our Lord. Fortunately, thanks to the “secular” elements of Christmas and the over-commercialism of the holiday, the Gospel is spread. I have been in stores filled with hundreds of people who hum along to the simple meaningless songs like “Frosty the Snowman” and then on comes O Holy Night. Oh, thinking of the lyrics of that song alone even in the heat of August floors me with worship. It is a great opportunity for people to inadvertently be introduced to Christ and the Gospel Message. Praise God, He works in mysterious ways.
