Comment: There could be something

(See in situ)

There could be something

There could be something wrong with it if it leads someone else astray or doesn't represent yourself the way you should as a Christian - even if there is nothing 'magical' or superstitious about it.

I've been on both sides of this issue in the past, and can see both things. Children don't see it as that. On the other hand, it is a greedy holiday - children could see that if it were mentioned. It's a different spirit from thanksgiving as usually celebrated (leaving apart church and caroling, etc - and just the secular part of it).

And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.
