as the insanity of holidays rolls around (again!) and we blow $$ on useless crap, may i remind us all of the "true" meaning of Christmas? the sinister takeover of pagan celebrations and belief system. when we cant force someone to do something, may the Church teach us something of hostile assimilation. the whole organized idea behind this holiday makes me sick, but i would like to encourage those of us who are spiritual (editors note: i intend on differentiation between the term "spiritual" from "religious") to invoke a year-round celebration of our beliefs. do not succumb to capitalistic holiday swill. do not buy crap or drink egg nog or wear ugly reindeer sweaters only around hallmark holidays!
