Christmas with Christ in It

Postby BOlsen on Mon Dec 05, 2005 11:55 pm

The frenzy to remove Jesus from Christmas hit a fevor pitch in 2005 - Whatever the reason, "Christ" is more than ever regarded by many as politically incorrect or insensitive in the culture of this holiday, especially this year. Welmart employees have even been instructed not to say, "Merry Christmas" to customers.

This made the St. Louis Olsens realize that our Christmas decorations were missing an expression of the real meaning of Christmas in our family. So we pulled out art supplies and painted a sign to add to our usual decorations. No ambiguity here this year!

We had to rely on our own skill-light artwork.

I love it!

You did a great job. Did you use stencils or anything or is that all free-hand? Regardless, I think it gets the message across quite well and it looks great!
