Love it!

And no, I don't believe we can really ever take a stand for 'Christmas' (God) and be politically correct in our country anymore...lol. But I also firmly believe that when we honor the Lord with our businesses, He will honor our businesses with His blessing, as well.

Look at Chick-fil-a restaraunts---they decided to close on Sundays years ago, so their workers could go to church and spend time with their families, and their business has never been better and more lucrative! And we all know what an 'eat-out' day Sunday is for alot of people!

Keep up the great work!

Well, I found it and modified it. Thought it was cool, but there needed to be a star and of course, Merry Christmas in the official font.....

I think it looks great!

And one thing is for sure---none of the other manufacturers that I checked have anything at all on their websites about Christmas.

So Caster is setting the bar on this one!

That's pretty cool, I didn't know you were into stereo install stuff. Being sponsored back when you were doing that gives a unique perspective. You know what it's like to be sponsored, and what it takes to represent a company properly. And now, you see it from the other side, where you have to look for people that can represent your company properly. Not alot of people get to experience both sides of that type of thing in their lives.

And you changed the password into Team World!!! That stinks!...lol.

Mmmm....with all due respect to VP, happy holidays just doesn't get it done for me. Side-steps the reason for the season. I like Caster's MUCH better!

Thought I would jump in with this. At one time I thought >>> Xmas <<< in place of Christmas was wrong!!! When I learned about "X" I changed my mind, BUT I still perfer CHRISTmas. :-)

===

From Wikipedia

"Xmas" is a common abbreviation of the word "Christmas". It is sometimes pronounced /ˈɛksməs/, but it, and variants such as "Xtemass", originated as handwriting abbreviations for the typical pronunciation, /ˈkrɪsməs/. The "-mas" part is from the Latin-derived Old English word for "mass", while the "X" comes from the Greek letter Chi, which is the first letter of the Greek word Χριστός, translated as "Christ".

Yeah, I just wished I could believe that is why the world uses 'x-mas', but I don't. Their hearts prove otherwise. Hardly anyone I have ever talked to about it even knew about the Greek translation of x.

So, like you Sir, I much prefer Christmas.

Indeed. It's really kinda funny how God likes to turn things around, and allow the world to bring Him glory through their feeble attempts to steal it.

Seems like that is happening more and more these days. Always brings a smirk to my face, and a glance towards heaven with my heart. He is awesome....
