Deck the Halls!
Posted in Religion by Julie Ponzi
writes a beautiful column calling on Christians to eschew the temptation to grouse about all the extra effort and expense of the Christmas season. She also takes to task one of my biggest pet peeves . . . the self-serving finger-wagging of those who are inclined to be less than generous by nature but disguise it with the tired, "Christmas is too commercial" lament. Yes, it is . . . but so what? It's also a time for true liberality and joy. As Mrs. Teti says, "moderate your moderation"!

What a great article! Christmas was always my favorite time of year, and I rejoiced in the season to its fullest, but for the past few years, the holidays have been a reminder to me of loss, not of the precious gift of Jesus, and my holiday spirit was limp. I pray this year will be the begining of a new attitude (or re-newed), and I agree that if it's worth celebrating, it's worth celebrating right - "Haul out the holly!"
