Merry Unitarian Christmas

It's a tradition of mine to wish you such. For someone else making the same point, see here.

Are unitarian Christmases merry around here? Pls advise. They seem rather theologically contentious, which ain't merry.

Is Christ your Savior? Even the Founding-era "unitarians" believed that. "Unitarian Universalists" of 2015, no.

Silent night, holy night, all is calm, all is bright
Round yon virgin Mother and Child, holy
Infant so tender and mild,
Sleep in heavenly peace,
Sleep in heavenly peace.

Silent night, holy night, shepherds quake at the sight,
Glories stream from heaven afar, heavenly hosts sing
Christ the Saviour is born,
Christ the Saviour is born.

Silent night, holy night,
Son of God, love's pure light,
Radiant beams from
Thy holy face, with the dawn of redeeming grace,
Jesus, Lord, at Thy birth,
Jesus, Lord, at Thy birth.
Silent night, holy night, wondrous star, lend thy light;
With the angels let us sing,
Alleluia to our King.
Christ the Saviour is born,
Christ the Saviour is born.

Savior? The dawn of redeeming grace? Inquiring minds want to know, Jon.

Merry Christmas, with no theological modifiers, my brother. Alleluia.
