Christmas is coming did you know?

So we finally went out to start Christmas shopping and lamost bought everything we needed. Suprisngly to me was that we did run into some very busy pockets of stores we also were at a mall where you basically could fire off a gun and not hit anyone.
To my amazement was we went into about 20 stores through the day and received no more than 4 " Have a Merry Christmas" and 1 "Happy Holidays".
So does this mean that now the Christmas greeting is also going by the wayside? It really disturbed me to no end. We also ran into a couple we know and the lady put it so well people have forgotten that this is the birth of Jesus we are celbrating and people only care for bigger and better not the reason of the occasion. This made me feel better as did Don Cherry on Hockey Night in Canada where he mentioned that Christmas Day is the birth of the baby Jesus and that is what we celebrate that day!
I guess there are people who still understand and remind you so you alleviate your frustrations about those who refuse to acknowledge the season and the reason of the season. Is this where we go; "forgive them lord for they know not what they do?"
Not sure but at least as mentioned I felt better by the end of the day. Thanks and take care and God Bless.
