During the sermon, the pastor said something he says at every Christmas Eve service: “If Christmas doesn’t... warm your heart, blah blah blah... then you know that something inside you has died.” This year i shook my head and leaned over and whispered to my mother, “No. It means something’s wrong with Christmas, not with your soul.”
One bit i did like was about not “spending” or even “observing” Christmas, but “keeping” it... “so that we may be kept in its hope.”
And almost the second i signed on to AIM tonight, quasisonic wished me happy holidays (seconded by offbalance). :) (And then later sexonastick did as well.) So let me extend wishes for a peaceful and joyous holiday season and new year to everyone.
