    First of all, Merry Christmas! With all the political correctness out there, and the movement to stop Nativity scenes everywhere, and taking Christ out of Christmas. I ask, What does Christmas mean to you?
    Please no nasty arguing, this is the season for "peace and good will towards men".

    To me, this is the season to remember the birth of the Savior of the world, to remember the gifts and why they were given.

    Merry Christmas:wavey:

    Giving to the less fortunate, keeping Christ in Christmas, watching the joy on my kids faces, spending time with family and friends, and thinking about and praying for my fellow brothers and sisters in the armed forces who are away from their families this year. God bless us everyone!

    Family is very important this time of year, this year I got to welcome some new men into the Christmas at my mother-in-laws. I was alone, four women and me.

    It's not about Santas Claus and gifts. Merry Christmas to you.

    To me it means getting to spend time with all my family and friends that mean the most to me...

    I do think a lot of people now days forget the real meaning of CHRISTmas tho... Merry Christmas to everyone... I hope you all have a wonderful day and share it with the ones that are the most important...

    It's about a large flat screen TV... J/K


    It's about being with my family. This year is extra special because I get to spend it with my wife.

    Do a little research on what "X" or rather "chi" means. (BIG HINT: it means Christ) Know your history my friend.



    To me, Christmas means being with my other half and family.
