What is Christmas really about? Presents? Candy? Family get-togethers? An economic boost? A cliché war (“Merry Christmas” vs. “Happy Holidays”)? All of these are questions that confront us annually.

It is found in Genesis 3:15: “And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed: it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.”
