Ok, so today I posted on my Facebook that I am feeling much anxiety about deciding what to give people as Christmas gifts. I didn’t think this would cause an argument, but it did. :eek:
This person commented that I should “read about Christmas in the Bible” That this person’s family has decided not to celebrate Christmas. I let her know that I can’t just overlook Christmas, it being a Holy Day of Obligation for me and that I have read that giving gifts can represent the gifts given to Christ at his birth. That it wasn’t wrong to give gifts. Anyway, this is where it got kind of weird. I have family of different protestant back grounds and I’ve never heard the things she was saying.
“I’m just as devoted to Jesus/Yeshua and God/Yah too.” I’ve never heard of God and Jesus being called differently. She said that since Jesus was Jewish she doesn’t celebrate man made holidays like Christmas and Easter. That they celebrate Passover.
With her saying that she is devoted to Jesus, I assume that she is a Christian. I have just never heard of a Christian deciding to forgo Christian holidays and celebrating Jewish ones.
Anyone can shed some light on this for me? Thanks!
