What about the rest of us?

carol is about the birth of Jesus, our Savior, and not one of the “carols” in the booklet did that.

Editor, The News:

We recently saw the insert “Cookies & Carols” in The News. I thought it was a pretty neat idea, until I opened it up and saw not a single carol in the booklet.

What was printed were Christmas “songs.”

A carol is about the birth of Jesus, our Savior, and not one of the “carols” in the booklet did that.

Why did you not include some carols, for all those of us who celebrate the true meaning of Christmas?

The reason we celebrate

Editor, The News:

The News paper dated Nov. 28, arrived with a booklet “Cookies & Carols – Festive Recipes and Christmas Carols.”

As I looked through the booklet one thing was very obvious – no Christmas carols that mention Christ.

These are the carols that make Christmas so special to me and I would say many other readers.

There is more to Christmas than Santa Claus; it is the birthday of Jesus Christ. He is the reason we celebrate Christmas all around the world.

Without any mention of Him with at least one Christmas carol is very one-sided and favors those who just believe in Mr. Santa.
