Re: [Histonet] Happy or Merry Christmas.

"Peace on earth, good will towards men" was announced by the angels at 
Jesus' birth.  It means peace on earth good will towards men from God, to 
those who accept Him.  Not man to man.  
However, you are right the Bible also says Christians are supposed to treat 
each other very well, thus showing others that they are Christians.

Merry Christmas all!
