Would you cancel Christmas?
It's nearly here. For some it conjures a picture of smiling children, fun, family and festive frivolity; for others it means stress, present pressure, debts and chores.
So if you had a big red CANCEL CHRISTMAS button that'd make the whole thing disappear (and just add the days to your holiday entitlement), would you press it?

Would be nice for it to not so commercial though.
The ones who weren't really looking forward to it are probably going to be the same ones to press the 'red button' this time.
I think it would be better moving to the Summer when the shops & pubs aren't as crowded and it's easier to get a taxi home 'cos they're not as busy.
What it may grow to in time, I know not what.

Having read the Bible cover-to-cover several times I can confirm that nowhere does Jesus claim to be the Creator or God. In fact he stated in John 14:28: "the Father is greater than I," and in John 20:17 "I am ascending to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God."
But Dastep is absolutely right that there's no salvation in anyone else but Jesus. He was truly the 'Messiah' or 'Christ' - the one anointed by God.
Christmas is a festival that is pre-biblical being a mid-winter festival long before Christianity, and the timing simply hijacks an old festival, in fact it's more likely to have been around late summer. (Shepard's in Judea did not tend flocks in December.)
I think the question should have been worded as would you like the commercial aspects of Christmas to be cancelled, otherwise it borders on discriminatory as someone else pointed out on here would Martin asked the same question of Pesach?
