The Sunday after this post goes live is Christmas Eve, and of course the day following that is Christmas day. Not everyone who reads this is necessarily Christian and I am in no way demanding Non-Christians observe a Christian celebration, in truth I think that a lot of “Christians” forget what Christmas is really about…
Beneath it all, once you strip away the hype, and ornamentation, and fancy wrapping paper, Christmas is about someone (call him God incarnate, just a man, or just a really good idea…) who gave all to help those around him. Christmas is about someone who gave all to create a better world and make us better. That is the point, and that is something that needs more attention than it receives these days.
So, to everyone out there Christian, Jew, Muslim, Buddhist, male, female, any of the above, gay, straight, somewhere in between, black, white, brown, or any other color in the crayon box… The day is yours to do with what you will. But while you’re at it, why not try morning with those who morn, lifting the down trodden, and otherwise making the world around you a better place. That’s what the day is really about, and despite other differences we may have I stand with you in these things.
Merry Christmas to all ad see you next week!
