Lovely!! What a wonderful reminder of the real reason for the season...the divine gift of love!
To my own mind, Christmas has been overhyped since antiquity.
It's believed that early Christians created a holiday for their new religion that would incorporate pagan observances in order to swell the ranks of the faithful, and the date is not significant to the true faith.
I agree with this analysis. Nowhere in the gospels does Jesus ask the faithful to loose their flippin minds over the date of his birth.
After all, it was not the beginning of Jesus' life that was important, but the humble and selfless end.
Phooey to the manic whoopla over presents and decorations and all the trappings of this holiday! Leave the world behind and rejoice in peace and love with those who are dear to you!!
