‘Tis the season – fa la la la la! (A discussion)

It’s the most wonderful time of the year
With the kids jingle belling
And everyone telling you “Be of good cheer”
It’s the most wonderful time of the year
It’s the hap-happiest season of all
With those holiday greetings and gay happy meetings
When friends come to call
It’s the hap- happiest season of all- Andy Williams

Is it? You tell me. So, soon after the “holiday” that I call the evilest that ever eviled, we are commercially inundated with seasonal cheer. At the local Kroger the Salvation Army santas are ringing their bells, there are stockings, tinsel and garland hung all around the store and associates have holiday smiles plastered on their faces. Let me ask you a question though, what does this season mean to you? When I was growing up my Father did not play that “santa coming down the chimney” stuff lol. He let it be known that it was his hard work that bought our gifts, games and toys! We would have a huge dinner, and the whole extended family would gather at our home to celebrate the season. The memories still make me smile, but I am all grown up now. I want to say that I absolutely love Thanksgiving; it is one day that I enjoy without abandon. Having our family together and cooking lots of food while giving thanks to God for being alive, together and healthy is to be celebrated, in my opinion. Beyond that day I have little use for the holidays, and this too is my opinion and I don’t expect any or everyone to share it. For one thing the word “holiday” itself is ripped from the biblical Holy Days, and this fictional Santa (anagram of Satan, need I say more?) who brings “gifts” to all the “good little girls and boys”….just….no. As for Christmas itself, I do not subscribe to the belief that Jesus was born on Christmas Day, but even for those who do it is no longer Christmas, it’s Xmas; you know because the world cannot have too much Christ in it, right? :)
