Christmas today is often seen as a battle between religious and secular forces. A never ending struggle between Baby Jesus on the one side, and on the other side, the Christmas of snow and reindeers, Santa Claus and Christmas trees. And it is a tug of war that Jesus seems to loose. The popular cultural Christmas with all its paraphernalia is still very much Christmas without Jesus. The nativity scene all by itself is for many probably not enough to conjure that celebrated Christmas feeling.
