Starkka: Merry Christmas not correct phrase


Most say Merry Christmas, and they mean well.

However, the word Christmas is not found in the Holy Bible (kjv/nkjv). Christmas is a mass for Christ created by the Catholic religion. Most celebrate birthdays, No one knows Christ’s birthday and most believe it certainly was not Dec. 25. Where did this come from)?

Blessed Holiday is fitting as this refers to Holy Day to remember Christ’s birth and is to be remembered every day.

Blessed Holiday and God’s peace to all. I am a born again Christian and believer in ministry — John 3: 3,7,16 (kjv).
