The true meaning of Christmas
Share
clear

According to Stephen Pollard, last year eighty-four people spent Christmas Day filing their tax return online. Bah, humbug? Or were they following an earlier example?

1And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be taxed.

2(And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.)

3And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city.

4And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:)

5To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child.

6And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered.

Luke 2

Times have changed. In those days women were delivered. Later it was babies. Now it's solutions.

(Mary and Joseph weren't married when she got pregnant. But it was a stable relationship.)
