Christians and Holidays

I am asking for your inputs and opinions on the following “Holy Days” which is the origin of the current Holidays.

Ash Wednesday

Lent

Palm Sunday

Good Friday

Easter

Halloween

Christmas

What should the Christian do about these and why?  Go ahead and cite traditions, scriptures, and “we’ve always done it this way” along with “Because the pastor said so”.

I want you to dig deeper in your faith, in your walk, in your commitment.

Feel free to comment, add, justify on this list.  Just some ground rules: Don’t get angry, Don’t flame anybody and don’t tell them they are wrong.  Tell them what you believe and why.

But let me add one more ground rule.  If I am a Christian, I am not a Jew, I am not a Gentile and neither are you if you call on Christ as your savior (and yes, you should). We can talk about that too.

I guess Sister Petra and I wound up discussing Pastor Prieto’s Sunday Sermon after all

Jude 1:3-4 (ESV) Beloved, although I was very eager to write to you about our common salvation, I found it necessary to write appealing to you to contend for the faith that was once for all delivered to the saints. For certain people have crept in unnoticed who long ago were designated for this condemnation, ungodly people, who pervert the grace of our God into sensuality and deny our only Master and Lord, Jesus Christ.

  1. A few verses that come to mind:

    “One man esteemeth one day above another: another esteemeth every day alike. Let every man be fully persuaded in his own mind.” (Romans 14:5)

    This is the day which the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it. (Psalm 118:24)

    I could say more if I weren’t so tired, but in short, I don’t like to get involved in commercial holidays. Few holidays are not commercial. Remembrance Day here in Canada is about the only one I can think of that doesn’t revolve around the sale of needless paraphernalia and an excuse to drink excessively!

    Every day is a day the Lord has made and worthy of celebration. 🙂
