If Jesus Christ wouldn't have been born 2,000 years ago, we might not possibly experience the following: Santa Claus, elves, Christmas trees, lights on bushes, decorations, wreaths, mistletoe, the holly and the ivy, "Duck Dynasty" Chia Pets, Clap On-Clap Off-The Clapper, parades, Rudolph, Frosty, all kinds of electronic gadgets, "The Nutcracker Suite" ballet, a day off for most folks (other than police, firefireghters, military-needed guys, hospitals and rest home workers), 2-week college vacations, many days for K-12 kids, Black Thursday, tasty Thanksgiving Day, Cyber Monday, school and church pageants, ugly sweater contests, extravagant company parties with lots of booze and people dressed to the hilt, special TV concerts, beautiful presents with curly bows, a boar's head supper with an apple in the pig's mouth, wassail bowls, 1,500 varieties of cookies, candy canes, popcorn balls, fudge, peanut brittle, cakes, pies, craft bazaars, Christmas cards, chimes and jingle bells, live manger re-enactments, toys, dolls, books, Christmas movies, stockings hung by the chimney (with care), midnight Mass, family dinners and gift exchanges, caroling, taking cookies to rest home folks, empty wallets and on and on and on!
