THE PEOPLE SPEAK – Amazingly, some don’t believe in Christmas

This writer has had the opportunity to write many letters to the editor, but something weird, strange, and almost ironic, recently came to my attention.

Incredulous as it seems and sounds, there are persons out in the far reaches of cyberspace who do not believe in Christmas or want to have anything to do with it. These revelations came across my computer screen from a simple request about how people celebrated the Christmas story and season.

It doesn’t require rocket science to wonder about human nature showing different or odd behaviors in almost any endeavor. It makes me wonder what happened to those people as children. Surely they had some feeling about Christmas, whether it was the traditional, secular aspect or the Biblical account of the birth of Christ.  Maybe someone has the answer or answers. Again, there is no middle ground.
