What's wrong with this picture?

In our kitchen, I have this dry erase board that I use for menu planning.  The other day, it looked like this:

It's hard to tell, but all of those coupons are covering up this:

Isaiah 9:6 A Child will be born to us.  God will give a Son to us.  

That is Kaleb's memory verse for Sunday School.  I felt very convicted that I had allowed the commercialism of the holiday to literally cover up the true meaning of Christmas.  I immediately took down the coupons and made a vow to Selah - pause and reflect. 

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
