English Christmas

"There has been only one Christmas - the rest are anniversaries." W.J. Cameron.

It looks like I’m spending my 4th Christmas in a raw outside of Romania. This time I spent it in London, Great Britain. Like in every other country and corner of the World,
Christmas has a unique taste here. How is Christmas in London from my point of view?
Quiet and calm. Like the previous generation of Englishmen.

My observations:
Christmas here has few Christmas lights. Very few lights comparing to the USA.
In UK, X-mas seems to be more of a vacation then a Christian celebration
95% of the Young people spend their Christmas in pubs
It shocked me that all Churches and cathedrals of all Christian denominations were filled up with immigrants from Eastern Europe and …only old English people. Almost NO English youth in the Churches.
Most of the English people travel or rest during this time
You should dream of a “White X-mas” but all You will get will be a …”Wet X-mas”. No snow. Only rain and heavy fog.

By the way, I am sure all of You already knew that Merry Christmas is… Santa Claus’s wife J So, best wishes to You all from: Merry, Santa and Rudolf!!!

I find this a somewhat sad commentary on our society. Perhaps if more youth saw evidences of lives changed by the power of God or daily lives lived by faith in God, they might not be so quick to write off Christianity as something for the elderly. This world needs evidence of an authentic faith and a relationship with God that has more meaning than just tradition.
