I don't think Jesus would be too impressed that we go into debt or run ourselves ragged trying to impress our friends and family in his name.

I celebrate Christmas because the spirit of Jesus Christ reawakened me to my connection with the divine. With honor and love, I celebrate his birth on earth like a Buddhist would celebrate Buddha's. We share a great meal and have a fun and happy day.

Generosity, peace and love should be for everyday and, of course, birthdays should be to celebrate how wonderful life is. Merry Christmas everyone!

  3. Amen and Amen! Merry Christmas to you and your family. And thanks for acknowledging Christ's birth as the reason to celebrate Christmas .. seems lost in the world today.

  5. And what better time then mid-winter to bring in some green and some lights into your home, whether this actually is his birthday or not. Have a jolly one, Ruth. :)
