The Christmas holiday has become an eclectic holiday with elements and history in Paganism, Winter Solstice, Christianity, commercialism, etc. Go

True, we should all be happy with what we have year round, but holiday breaks like Christmas give us a temporary reprieve from our daily/yearly
monotony. Sometimes it, "Bah-Humbug!" can't wait for it to be over. Sometimes we look forward to the happiness of a loved one opening a special
gift or a big family dinner. But it makes us feel something, and to feel is to be alive, IMO.
I'm not crazy about the Christmas shopping rush, but at the same time I cherish those cozy Christmas memories as a child at this time. As somebody
who isn't religious, I say we leave the holiday be. It has become the sum of it's parts. It's a special time of the year, no matter what your
And by the way, Happy holidays, Solstice, Hanukkah, Merry Christmas and all the rest! Eat, Drink, and be Merry!!!
