Fr. Desmond Desmond O’Donnell, a parish priest in Cleenish in Co Fermanagh, Northern Eire, claims Christians have misplaced the true which means of Christmas.
“We have to let it go, it’s already been hijacked and we simply must recognise and settle for that.”
He denied he was being a scrooge or a Christmas killjoy and added he wasn’t towards atheists and agnostics celebrated the start of Christ in their very own means however he needed a separate phrase with extra non secular connotations.
“I’m simply attempting to rescue the fact of Christmas for believers by giving up ‘Christmas’ and changing it with one other phrase.”
As a substitute he advised the phrase ‘Christmas’ could possibly be substituted for ‘Nativity’ and ‘Easter’ for ‘Resurrection’.
