It used to be the most wonderful time of the year. Used to. Now it's all money, gifts, with Walmart and associated retailers making huge profits from it all. The real reason for Christmas has been forgotten, set aside for commercialism. I did not exaggerate the other day when I wrote that kids think Santa was born on Christmas day. A few years back, I remember, on tv, a child say that how funny it was that Jesus was born on Christmas day. Think about that one.Jacques,
It's the most wonderful time of the year.
Peace on Earth and good will towards men.
Do you hear what I hear?
Hark! The herald angels sing.
A rum pa pum pum.
Meanwhile, "Hark! The herald angels sing.
A rum pa pum pum." as war, terrorism and economic discomfiture rage all over the world and loving people of all types of religions allow the third world poor to starve.
