The commercialization of Christmas

The commercialization of Christmas

In part 2 of our heroes’ yuletide extravaganza, the gang considers the dreaded Commercialization of Christmas. We’re talking tinsel and blue lights and Bing Crosby and Mariah Carey and presents and tacky wrapping paper and mistletoe and Santa Claus. All the secular cultural baggage that comes with Christmas. All the, y’know, stuff. What’s a Christian to do with it?

In our heroes’ case, they mount a defense.
