Christ at the Center of our Celebrations

Passage: John 12:1-8 

Christmas often becomes secularized or commercialized.  How can Christ be at the center when it comes to our celebrations?  At a dinner celebration (likely a banquet), we see Jesus becomes the focus as Mary anoints him.  He makes a bold clear statement, “You do not always have me.”  Said a little differently, we won’t always have opportunity to make much of Jesus before a lost world.  So, it begs the question, how can we “anoint” Jesus in our celebrations this Christmas season?
