Also, in this country during the Christmas season, it’s difficult to find the word “Christmas” in many of the stores (while they take Christians’ money).

Which is why I wrote an “It’s OK to say Merry Christmas” letter to the editor.

You make essential points.  Regarding Christmas merchansising, I went so far as to immediately return a box of Christmas cards to the store when I discovered that they were actually made in China....a county long known for brutal persecution of Christians.  It seemed to be far too much of an ironic statement to send a good friend my wishes for a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year on a card that may have been made by slave labor.  Similarly, even though I try to avoid "Made In China" goods all year long,  I make a particular effort to avoid giving gifts made in China at Christmastime.

Good for you. I also do not buy Christmas cards from Communist China who persecute Christians, & boycott other Chinese products as much as possible.

I send away for powdered garlic produced in California, because it’s difficult to find garlic that isn’t from China in the stores.
