I make a point to say Merry Christmas and not Happy Holidays. If you don't believe in Jesus, get your butt back to work. No holiday for you. :D

King Harod sent three wisemen to verify that a possible child might be the Messiah. After he found out that they not only found the Messiah, but worship Him, he had every male child that was two years of age or less slain. This slaughter brought major attention throughout the world. People started believing that Christ had arrived, thus the wait was over, so history from this point on was recorded "ad", or "anno Domini", which means- The year of our Lord. People referenced time by how far they were from major events. Since the slaughter that King Herod brought about and the recognition of the birth of Christ were the most major things, it was the major reference.

This thread took pllace 2002 years after this major event. Not Christ's birth.

Denny, I'm impressed! We do a live nativity scene at our church every year, and I think you're on the money. Merry X-mas...and lets not forget what it's REALLY all about.
