There are altogether too many holidays, all clustered, this time of year. Or is it just this year? Yeh, maybe. Tis Christmas Eve. And that means . . . ? I don’t know. Some Evangelical Christians claim that they are being persecuted because other folks don’t respect the holiday. Seems to me that the very existence of the holiday and all that it means to society writ large are way way – way – more than ample evidence that far more than adequate respect is given. I’ll leave that right there. This morning sports a balmy 26º air temperature and a forecast for snow, which may or may not be true. Whatever. Boy howdy do I ever get a feeling that enough is enough! Yeh, whatever. I’m headed to work, half day. It’s a holiday tomorrow. Did you know that? I’ll be home with my cat, and happily so. I’ve no taste for socializing this year. This is not a negative attitude. Nope. It is a simple fact. It need not mean anything beyond healing, and stuff. All said with a smile. Merry Christmas.
All is well. Goof gloriously.
