CNN.com has actually run a front page story on it, "Some megachurches closing on Christmas."
With many others, I lament any church that would decide against corporately worshiping Jesus Christ on the Lord's Day, especially on a day that is supposed to be dedicated to His incarnation!
Here are a few blog entries discussing this phenomenon (in no particular order):
Slice of Laodicea
Additionally, the Boar's Head Tavern is having quite a bit of discussion on this issue. Of course, I do not normally recommend some of these blogs. Nevertheless, I believe that if they are read with a discerning and critical mind, then we can gain insight from them.
Frankly, I find little to add to the discussion at this point. I simply pray that our churches will return to sanity and rediscover a biblical and robust doctrine of the church (ecclesiology).
