It is that time of year when you and your family have an opportunity to share in Christmas cheer with family and friends. But what you may not be aware of is the insidious War on Christmas that is occurring and unfortunately is nothing new in Obama's America. The weapons that are being used to wage war on Christmas are lawsuits, mainstream media attacks and willing liberal politicians who degrade and denounce Christmas celebrations.

Last year there were several hundred attacks on Christmas celebrations and only one news organization, Fox News spent time focusing on the growing number of incidents which deprive children of celebrating Christmas in schools and families being able to celebrate and share Nativity Scenes in many public places. These mounting assaults upon Christians and upon religious freedom to publically celebrate Christmas is a War on Christmas by atheists and ACLU supporters that the nation cannot afford to lose.

Many detractors have worked tirelessly throughout the year to undermine Christian beliefs, be it the president's drive to deprive military training academies the passing out of bibles to even expressions of faith by soldiers. Now with the Christmas season arriving, these opponents of Christmas celebration are attacking a number of venues to insure that the message of Christ's birth is eradicated from any public viewing in America. What is needed to counter this scandalous behavior is moral outrage. Instead there is deafening silence while other secular seasonal efforts are given free reign like Kwanza which is a manufactured holiday.

Over the past decade a myriad of lawsuits and threats of lawsuits have been filed against public schools and cities that even propose the placement of a nativity scene in view of supporters of Christmas. Therefore it is no small wonder that younger adults born between the 1980's and early 2000s who are part of Generation Y, are increasingly failing to embrace the religious meaning of Christmas.

According to The Week,'s information from the Public Religion Research Institute last year, its study showed that now 49 percent of Americans accept the belief that Merry Christmas should be replaced with the saying, "Happy Holidays." This is not coincidental. After all President Obama who has been neutral on the vilification of Christmas nativity scenes which have increased being under attack since he took office. Obama himself appears to be more comfortable reciting and participating in Muslim observances than Christian. Now, as time passes with him in office the abandonment of Christian Christmas celebration and the traditional greeting of "Merry Christmas" that goes along with it has plummeted.

Only Fox News has done the heavy lifting when the president has decided to go golfing when it comes to reminding Americans about where the War on Christmas continues to be waged. Even though the numbers of celebrants of the true message of the birth of Christ being the reason for the season has dwindled in recent years, the war is far from over.

The Week mentioned that a majority of Americans or 51 percent of respondents to a 2013 Pew Poll accepted that Christmas is "more of a religious holiday." Despite all of the commercialization of Christmas only 32 percent of Americans believe it is a cultural one.

Where does that leave Christmas Season 2014 for Americans? It leaves believers with a firm hold on the meaning for the season and a need to commit to strengthen or renew the bridge to reestablishing America's biblical roots. Even if younger and younger Americans are being brainwashed into believing that Christmas is about " happy holidays" instead of the greatest Christmas gift of all: Christ's birth; all is not lost. Each of you have the opportunity to spread and share the meaning of the Christmas season.

Millennials are a hundred percent of America's future and the message of a Holy Christmas season is a miracle that God will continue to bestow upon a believing nation. Join in with Fox News and millions of others in towns, cities, neighborhoods and homes and continue to share the reasons why Christ was born. Be cheerful and if you have to announce from your rooftop "Merry Christmas" and Happy New Year!
