Looking forward: At church this Sunday the pastor mentioned something that I have always felt - Christ is the reason for the season. Yes, ok, Hanukkah is around the same time of year, but it's considered a minor holiday. Kind of like how Cinco de Mayo (a small battle fought in Puebla, Mexico) is a minor remembrance as compared to the 16 de Septiembre which is the Mexican Independence Day. But, I digress.
For years, I've always said, "Merry Christmas" in response to someone's holiday greeting. My Christmas cards say, "Merry Christmas" when I can find them with a bear or cow or fancy Christmas tree on them. And, I say, let city halls in communities with a preponderance of Christians be allowed to decorate their grounds with a Nativity scene.
