My token Christmas Day sketch – orchard rd Singapore

December 25, 2012 | 9 Comments

I hope everyone is having a great 25 December.

I don’t observe Xmas day as a religious event and personally don’t care too much about having a big family day … Therefore it was fun to have an unxmas day. But thought I had to do a sketch to record the crazy walk down Orchard rd.

Reasons for those two shocking statements – although I am a Christian do not observe Christmas as we are not told to observe Christ’s birth in the Bible. I do believe we are to observe one day in seven – the first day of the week, the Lords Day, as a day of rest and worship commemorating His rising from the dead. I think it is a much better deal to have a special day once a week!

I do not need to be with my family today. We have SO many great times together during the year. I don’t need presents as I feel that having the family I do is better than anything money can buy.

    My pastor husband was interested in this and said there's nothing wrong with that, but then joked, "it's too hot there to celebrate Christmas anyway!" Wishing you good times with your family and great Lord's Days. Thank you for all your lessons and insights!

    I agree with your comments here. This is the way I actively approach Xmas as well. From Sandi.

    Thank you for all your interesting and informative blogs throughout the year and this heART-warming message today! Great sketches as usual, and nice to see pictures of what the other side of the world looks like today! Winter here in Canada, and though very mild today, we are gearing up "unwillingly" for the snow days ahead! All the best for 2016!

    Yes Liz My wife and I give thanks to our Lord every day for the gift He gave us both and don't need man's made up religious spend ups. I agree family times are precious throughout the year.

      Hi John - thanks so much for your comment. Not a lot of people think the same, so very special to find people that do. May the Lord bless you and family richly in 2017.

    It's a blustery day here in the North of Scotland..No Christmas sunshine at the moment! I so enjoy your posts, Liz. Many thanks for sharing your great talents throughout the year. Family times are indeed precious and I send wishes for a peaceful and happy 2017, to you and yours.

    I dont think its very Christian to be calling it Xmas.

      Oh. I am sorry if that offends you. I understand the x to be the Greek letter ch = Christos so it is just an abbreviation not a removing of Christ from the word. And if I use it I am just abbreviating.
