You might see Nativity scenes all over the place this Christmas. A pastor has asked all Christians to display a Nativity scene at their homes and businesses this year. So far the response (based on feedback) has been very high. Go to http://www.thetruthmatters.com/ and click on "Operation Nativity" for details. I think that's pretty cool, and may have to get an outdoor Nativity myself this year. We have a small indoor one, already. ETA: Interesting article by the AP on the battles already starting over Christmas celebrations in schools and displays on public grounds: http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20051104/ap_on_re_us/christmas_wars I, for one, don't like so many of the stores now calling what are clearly Christmas items "Holiday" items to be "non-offensive" to non-Christians. Never mind the Christians' feelings, eh? lol. And just what other "holiday" would you be displaying a tree, etc, for? Kwanzaa? lol! Actually, from a marketing point of view, it may be a bad thing for them as I don't feel as much in the gift buying spirit when I see ads with such generic terminology. Only when I think of Christmas specifically do I feel like buying gifts for people. Christmas buying has been down in recent years, even during boom times, which is about the same time as their removal of the word Christmas from their sales, hmmmm. Can you say, Backfire?
