All true, Christianity stole a lot of that in the early years. Including Easter. I consider myself a born-again pagan.

I didn't say I wasn't a Pagan. Just not a Warlock or anything that negative connotation represents. You've heard the term "Spiritual not Religious". I fall into that catagorie. The Old beliefs have been around long before any of the modern organized religions. It is easier for me to see how the Four Elements affect my daily existence. Each one of the modern religions borrowed portions of "Paganism" that they liked, then they condemned the rest. Believe what you feel the best about. Be thankful that we don't make a habit out of killingl each other for having different views in this country. If you want to keep Christ in your Christmas, Cool by me and Tomorrow is your day. If you feel strongly about keeping Crust on your Toast, why the hell should I condemn you. I'm sure you'll have a special day too. I get disgusted at the Commercialism that has taken over the Holidays. When I see Christmas stuff in a store before Halloween it pisses me off. In my eyes no matter what your beliefs are centered around, people are the real
"reason for the season". Family and those we hold dear in our lives are the real presents and deserve celebration.

My drink is once again empty..gotta fix that!

To my ADV Family, Merry Christmas!!

Blessed Be

ESP OMB, Thank you for your heart felt greeting, as I celebrate numerous holidays between Thanksgiving and News Years, and do not believe greetings such as yours is a deliberate attempt to exclude anyone, I felt it was very inclusive, and appreciate the sentiment.

Your ADV Friend,

Katy

almost sounded like an attempt at a slice of grumpy!,
like something I might start out with, then steer it into the ditch!
My wife Linda and I agreed we really did favor 2 holidays,,4th of July and Halloween,,but the rest are a smear,,line up and buy,buy, buy.
Sooo,,,bye bye!
Every day you wake up is a celebration, if you don't get that, yer reading the wall etchings.
Riding the little bike around the lake,west on the hwy, up the hill at goodman crk., and down the ridge to see Ricklesss for a "welcome home from the hospital" visit tomorrow, problly go around lunch time if anyone wants to ride.
And guess what?
John Lennon was right!


AND IN THE END!,,,,
the love you take, IS equal to the love you make!
peace all

Since the daylight increase at this time of year is incremental, I tend to not get really enthused until about mid February, and it's been a bugger for cold this year.

All the best, for everyone no matter what your beliefs.

Me, I'm with OMB, life's a mysterious journey, I try to not read too much into it.
