Questions for Study

People seem to decorate and play Christmas music earlier every year.  What might be a reason for this, aside from the commercial aspect?  Especially this year, 2020, what might they be looking for the Christmas experience to furnish?   Sadly, from a sheer human perspective, what happens when the 12 days of Christmas becomes the 12 weeks of Christmas?

Often people want to exchange gifts loved ones specially selected & gave them, for something they’d rather have.  How does this illustrate a spiritual truth?  Have we Christians done this to God in gifts He’s sent us?

If our religious freedoms are severely pruned, even fully taken away at some future time, how would we celebrate Christmas?  Where would we take our cue?  What of Christmas can’t be taken away?
