Midchuck BS: I Don't Feel Much Like Christmas (54* d) RE: BS: I Don't Feel Much Like Christmas 08 Dec 12

Kendall is right (for once - HAW!) about Christianity having usurped the pagan Yule, and commerce then having usurped the Christian holiday - but there's a little bit of poetic justice there.

We attended a small open mike at the local tiny Methodist church last night, and I sung The Rebel Jesus, which sums up my feelings about Christmas pretty well. I thought the minister might be offended, but she asked me where she could get the words.

For myself, I'm alive and active, which is something I didn't know whether I would be, this time last year. And Kris is, too. And my kids are, and are prospering. I wish they lived closer, but knowing how many people have middle aged kids still living with them, 'cause they have no work, or drug issues, or both, while their school loans pile up interest, I can deal with that.

So I feel a little more like Christmas than I have some years in the past.

I'm still not going to spend the kind of money the business community wants me to. I wouldn't even if I could.
