Biblical History Part 5

Scripture Reading:  Jeremiah 10:1-2   “Hear the word which the LORD speaketh unto you, O house of Israel.Thus saith the LORD, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the sign of heaven: for the heathen are dismayed at them.”

I got underwhelmed on Monday (November 21st) when they began to play Christmas music at my workplace, songs like Jingle Bells, Santa Claus is Coming to Town, Silent Night, Noel, White Christmas, etc. Repeatedly they play this Christmas serenade every day, every hour, every minute without ceasing. It will drive me very close to the point of insanity.

This will happen because they will play this mostly secular Christmas music until the second week of January. I thought in my mind that, for sure, there was no way that Christmas was a Christian holiday—it had to be misnamed. Why would the world get so excited about it each year if it was truly a Christian holyday?

Lucifermas should be its correct name, not Christmas.
