Why is Glenn split on Christmas?

Now that Halloween has passed, the Christmas holiday PR blitz is full steam ahead. On radio this morning, Glenn explained why he is torn about the early, commercialized buildup to the holiday and reminisced about the wild fluctuations in how he has approached Christmas. Why does he struggle so much with this holiday?

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

“I guess we’re after Halloween, so we can say perfect for the holiday season,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “We had this conversation just the other day, that I am really tired of the commercialism part of Christmas, but I really like the spirit of it.”

“Everything is going up already. There was a section at Target the other day that already had stuff up before Halloween,” Stu said. “You have had a weird struggle with Christmas over the years. I remember one year where Glenn – this is before you were here, Pat – but Glenn got in this mode of realizing he had some money for once in his life, and decided to buy everyone he knew the most extravagant Christmas present ever. I got like the best Mac they made. It was awesome computer, like the top of the line.”

Glenn explained that he has had Christmases at both ends of the spectrum. There were years earlier in his career in which he could barely afford to buy his daughter the ornament she wanted from CVS. And then there were the more recent years in which he could buy just about anything his children’s hearts desired. But is it really worth it?

“I have done the Christmas where I could not afford something for my kids at CVS. I couldn’t afford an ornament at CVS,” Glenn said. “Then I went five or ten years later, when we hit it, I decided this Christmas, I have money, I am going to buy everything that I want to buy for everybody I know. So I bought everything I could. And literally, the stack of presents under the tree came up almost to my chest. It was insane. That was worse than the Christmas I couldn’t afford things. It was so empty. And both of them were lies. Both of them were lies. One was ‘I’m really super-great because I’m giving all these presents,’ and it was empty. There was nothing to it? So that’s kind of where I’m kind of split. I try to find the middle place.”

While Glenn is hoping to find the middle ground with Christmas this year by requiring his family to only exchange gifts that are hand made, Stu wasn’t so sure he will be able to achieve his ultimate objective.

“You are never trying to find the middle,” Stu exclaimed. “You are trying to find a new extreme way to go: You can’t buy anything new.”

“You have to make it out of sod,” Pat joked. “Whatever present you give has to be from sod.”

    Lack of eyewitnesses to the rising Jesus does not dispel that the rising actually occurred. Many saw the death, some participated in the entombment, some witnessed the risen Christ.

    Why is everyone, including Glen, so interested in celebrating Christmas? It is a pagan holiday instituted by Constantine and others after him. Yeshua was not born in December nor on December nor the winter solstice. Do your reseach folks!
    http://www.therefinersfire.org/yeshuas_birthday.htm

    The Christian church has duped many [I was one of them until the scriptures opened my eyes to the truth.] Many Christians insist on celebrating the man-made “holiday” of Christmas, even though many of them know that our Savior was not born in December. Yeshua was born during the Feast of Tabernacles – known as Sukkot.

    YHWH (Yahweh/The Creator) arranged for His Son to be born in His timing – as revealed in His Mo’edim – Biblical Feasts/Appointed Times. Yeshua has so far fulfilled on the first FOUR of the SEVEN Biblical Feasts and there are just three more to go!

    One of the Feasts Yeshua fulfilled was His own birthday: The first day of Sukkot – the Feast of Tabernacles, which falls in the September/October timeframe on our man-made Gregorian calendars – three months before “Christmas”! This makes Christmas a lie on many levels, especially the “Santa Claus” lie we tell our children. Most know that lying is a sin….so why are Christians still lying to their children and celebrating a pagan holiday?

  • Scott Todd

    Other than Judas (suicide) and John (who was the only disciple to die a natural death) there were 10 others who went to martyrs’ deaths attesting to the resurrection. I seriously doubt that many people would die for something they knew to be a lie.

    Sweetheart can you prove what you say? Of course not. So why do you believe it?

  • Dalene Kolk

    My problem with “Christmas” is that we probably celebrate it the wrong time of year. Since our current tax system is similar to the ancient Roman’s tax system Jesus was most likely born in in April. My second problem is that people lack gratitude when you give them a gift. In my case my daughter-in-law will give me a huge list for for the kids, with sizes and their favorite colors, what game, etc. We are on a fixed income, we limit what we spend on each child. I pick 3 or 4 items from the list, and guess what it is never right! I get the wrong size (the size she wrote!) or I must have misread what she wrote, etc.(grrrrr) So this year we are giving each child cash. So 9 of the kids will get a sum of cash, less than I would spend and they can get whatever they choose. The 10th one lives with us and he is happy with whatever we give him. So we will spend more on him, should make my d-i-l happy, she will have that to complain about all year! I thought we had a good relationship, but learned recently we don’t. My bad I guess!

    I hope this is not a repeat post. Please forgive me if it is, the one I was typing suddenly disappeared…Anyway, this has really become my soapbox of the day….The way we Christians are celebrating Christmas through gift giving is so wrong, it is sinful. We need to look around us and see what is this really conveying to people. When our country’s economic outlook and forecast are dependent on the data they receive after the Christmas shopping season, then it must not be about worshiping our Christ. We really need to stop it and turn our focus back on Jesus. Also, look at who we support…non-Christians…they are the business owners, suppliers etc follow the money. It is wrong when people are maxing out their credit cards to participate in gift giving. The season is suppose to be a time of worshiping our Messiah, yet we focus more on the presents…My friends and family think I’m hateful because I stopped buying gifts…and my response is, It’s not your birthday, and how can I compete with God’s gift to us, and I cringe when I hear the words, I can’t wait till Christmas so I can get the ______ I’ve been waiting for! (where is God in this). Hmmm wonder how much the government will give all citizens to spend on
    Christmas to avoid the collapse of our economy, not to mention other
    countries who supply the gifts we buy. Man, created this gift giving not God. Totally agree we need an occasion to celebrate the birth of our Messiah, I just feel we have tainted it with the extreme gift giving. I truly believe we are grieving God through this and we need to put our focus and worship back on Him, celebrating the revelation of God through the life and teachings of Jesus, (God in the flesh), being led now by the Holy Spirit. What an awesome God!

    Thank you! I have felt so betrayed by the Church since learning the truth. Our willingness to observe pagan holidays that are specifically forbidden in Scripture are causing us to ignore the Feasts of the Lord that we are commanded to observe. I have decided I will no longer attend a church that observes and teaches the lies and doctrines of men that are Christ ‘Mass’ and Ishtar (Easter).

  • Anonymous

    Christmas is not a celebration of Jesus’s birthday, he was probably born in the early or late spring (even Judea gets rather cold at night in winter, the shepherds wouldn’t have had their sheep in the fields). But it is a celebration of rebirth, a pagan holiday and a Roman holiday (Saturnalia) that was approximately at the winter solstice when the lengthening of days showed the change of seasons that symbolized the rebirth of the “sun”, and of the coming seasons of growth.

    The choice of the solstice to celebrate the birth of Jesus was not a concession to the pagan holidays by the early Christians as some contend, it was a legitimate symbolic choice for the rebirth of mankind through the birth of Christ.

    Having said that I’ll remind you that I am atheist, but also respect the preaching of Jesus the man. I hate Christmas as a commercial holiday. I turn off my ears in the stores as I hear the carols and the other “Christmas” songs in November and December. I grew up setting up the tree on the 24th and decorating it with my family – I now do that two weeks before Christmas as my lady and I are a bit elderly and slow, and she leaves for Ohio to see her great-grandchildren over Christmas – so our Christmas is a bit before and a bit after the 25th.

    Long after I became atheist I would still go to the midnight service on Christmas eve to hear the carols and think on the meaning of the celebration. Were I still living where there were wassailers I’d be singing carols with them. It is a holiday for all in which each can celebrate the goodness that can be in man, and the goodness that was in Christ – whether divine or not.

    We shall have our tree again this year, even though it is an artificial one, and I’ll make a few more ornaments for it out of wood. But I’ll still remember when I was young and my father and I would go and buy the tree from the lot. I had read a story of the father and son carrying the tree home, the son with the tip and the father with the stump. I insisted that we carry it home together that way (even though we didn’t cut it in the woods, as in the story).

    Christmas is a time for remembrance and for family. For Christians it is a celebration of the birth of Christ (but not the birthday of Jesus). For others it is the time of the lengthening of days and the rebirth of the seasons. For each it is a time of joy and giving, whatever they may call it. It is a symbol to all, each in their own way.

    Glenn is on target when he suggests that gifts be hand made, I do that with my grown children sometimes. But the real criterion is that the gift should be from the heart rather than the wallet. If you give a book don’t look at the best sellers list, take the time to find one that is less known but would be of interest to the recipient. A gift requires some time and thought and effort on your part in order to be real. The recording “The Little Drummer Boy” is a bit tacky in some ways, but it expresses the sense. If one doesn’t give of one’s self then one is just spending money.

    Sweetheart you claimed there is eyewitness accounts by anti-Christian historians. Okay, now it’s time to post your proof, please be specific. Thank you.

    Some Astronomers said it might of been the summer before when their was a rare event where three planets aligned and made a bright misshapen object in the sky that might of look like the very thing the wise men said seeing.

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IDFGELoC4zc Sam Fisher

    And astronomers also think that this was the case. They claim that their was a strange alignment of three planets that made the star that the wise men followed but for this to be true Jesus’ birth would of have to happen in summer instead of winter which matches up to history because the only reason why the church set it up on a pagan holiday was to covert pagans.

    Oh Glenn, you think too much. Really. There IS a middle ground between too much materialism and too little.. That middle ground is to look at everything in the world as if it was a gift. Some of it takes money, some of it doesn’t. But all should be appreciated for what they are. If you do that you will realise that there are gifts every day. You and your family will feel wealthier than anything. If you do celebrate Christmas maybe the best thing to start out all that appreciation by is to give a gift each day and start the morning with it. Gifts can be anything at all. Just like how you do at supper with the “best thing about the day” idea but different.

    O.K. stupid. How do you know the accounts of those who witnessed Ceasar are true since they are not here to question? If you can’t take the witnesses of Christ as told in the history of the gospels then why can you think other historical witnesses are to be believed? Maybe Ceasar was made up.

    I concur Sam, but I think it was probably a couple of years before. My memory says 3 BC, but O’Reilly’s Killing Jesus puts it as 4 BC. There was definitely a conjunction of either planets or stars (memory problem again) reported as a bright object as far away as China. Astronomers have dated the conjunction, I just don’t remember which year. .

    Now, before I get jumped on by fundamentalists, let me remind them that the calendar is a creation of mankind – and is different in all the ancient cultures. The astronomers can date an event in the sky to our calendar – but cannot say that the event is the one being referred to. But it is likely that if the Magi were drawn to Herod’s court to seek the Messiah by a bright star, that would have been it. There is no denial of the Bible or the Gospels in saying that the dates are a bit off.

    Oh, brother. I don’t celebrate Christ’s birth on Dec. 25th because that’s what I think his actual birthday was. The account of his birth we recite all the time isn’t accurate either. You can die over the details or thank God Christ was sent into the world and give to charity. And no one says you have to tell your kids about Santa Claus. My parents never tried to trick me. Told me from the start it was all fake and Santa was never part of the celebration.
