Matt 2

9 After they had heard the king, they went on their way, and the star they had seen when it rose went ahead of them until it stopped over the place where the child was. 10 When they saw the star, they were overjoyed.

11 On coming to the HOUSE, they saw the child with his mother Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped him. Then they opened their treasures and presented him with gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh.

Jeremiah 10:3-5

New International Version (NIV)

3 For the practices of the peoples are worthless;
they cut a tree out of the forest,
and a craftsman shapes it with his chisel.
4 They adorn it with silver and gold;
they fasten it with hammer and nails
so it will not totter.
5 Like a scarecrow in a cucumber field,
their idols cannot speak;

No Christmas doesn't put me/us in a financial bind, our family quite frankly never bought into the manic shopping and overspending mindset. I mean we like to go out and go shopping, but is mostly windowshopping for us girls (yes we know guys hate that, LOL) do people watching and look at all the lights and things like that. But basically as far as just "buying more stuff" that's really kept to a minimum. Us kids were raised knowing that we had everything we need, and most of everything we want, so our list of "gi'me more things!" has always been really short. We always had gifts under the tree, just not decadent heaping piles of them. It's kind of tragic and I don't know what all, that some people rack up credit card debt and drive themselves bankrupt overspending at Christmas. That's not what the holiday is really all about! And open the door on a lot of people's garage and its so stacked full of unneeded stuff that they bought on previous years, there's no room in there for the car!

It obviously has nothing to do with Christ.
