      I remember seeing a picture or jpg/bmp image of the just Puritan law
      forbidding the celebration of Christ-mass under penalty of 5
      shillings. I can't seem to find it but would like to.

      Without a doubt, this is a slightly stressful time of the year for me.
      Not only the commercialism of this time but also the majority of the
      world who doesn't know about the truth of Christ-mass (a pagan festival
      and the fact that it has no Scriptural warrant or justification).
      Also, the rest of my family celebrates it.

      As one of my Presbyterian friends put, "Why Christ-mass when we already
      have 52 holy days a year?" (He is one of the few 20-somethings who
      strongly uphold the RPW.)

      FCC&C,
      Whit
