Is Christmas taken from us this year?

Dear Editor,

Is Christmas taken from us this year? MN Premier Pallister admits he is stealing Christmas from Manitobans. Premier Jason Kenny and Dr. Deena Hinshaw tell us Albertans that we can’t eat with anyone or have anyone in our homes. Many believe that we won’t be allowed to celebrate Christmas this year. As disappointing as this is, we must ask ourselves - what is Christmas anyway?

The Hallmark channel tells us it is shopping, community events and family gatherings, etc. If that’s what you believe, then you won’t have Christmas this year. That is very sad and many people are going down the road to despair and depression because of it.

The good news is that we can all still celebrate Christmas. No person or pandemic can stop us from celebrating the birth of Christ, our Saviour.

I want to wish all of us a very MERRY CHRISTMAS!
