The Fifth Day Of Christmas

On the Fifth Day Of Christmas, My True Love gave to me: FIVE GOLD RINGS

The Five Gold Rings represent the first five books of the Old Testament, known as the Torah or the Pentateuch: 1) Genesis, 2) Exodus, 3) Leviticus, and 4) Deuteronomy, which gives the history of humanity's sinful failure, and God's response of Grace in the creation of a people to be a light to the world.
The Christmas Holiday has been usurped of late, mostly due to marketing, and commercialism. The other thief, is multiculturalism. The proponents of multiculturalism contend that every holiday, regardless of origin and or Faith, should have an equal and like kind of holiday. It's sort of like: Every action has a equal and opposite reaction. Christian's have Christmas, so in turn, Jews need to have Hanukkah, Afo-Americans, must have Kwanzaa, Muslims must have Ramadan, and everybody must celebrate each one, as if it were their own, except Christmas, for some reason. It's only fair, and no one gets left out, right? If I were of the Jewish Faith, I would certainly celebrate Hanukkah, and if I were Afro-American, I would celebrate Kwanzaa, maybe, but if I were a Black Christian, I would celebrate Christmas, as well as Kwanzaa, as the two holidays are not relative to each other. If I were Muslim, I would certainly take part in Ramadan, but, I wouldn't celebrate Christmas, or Hanukkah. The two holidays aren't even remotely connected, just as Islam, and Christianity, and Judaism are not of the same belief. They are about as close as three bb's in a boxcar. So, what's the point? The point is, Christmas is a Christian Holiday, it is, 100% Christian. If you celebrate Christmas, it is imperative that you know, it is the celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ, the Saviour of the world according to Christian believers. It is NOT anything else, and can not be construed as anything else, no matter what any politician says. Multiculturalist Nations can not stand. "Tolerance is the final virtue of a doomed society", make no mistake, that is a true statement.
If you are a Christian, as I am, do not allow anyone, of any other Faith, or anyone of absolutely NO Faith diminish our Christmas. It is, what it is! We, as Christians have a right to celebrate it!!! There is a God, He reigns, and Jesus Christ was born, and lived, and was crucified and died for our sins, and the sins of all mankind. Jesus open the gates of paradise through His ultimate sacrifice. He said: "I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life, no man comes to the Father except through Me."
