Many reasons exist why a person should love and embrace the Christmas
season. I hear of those who attack the Christmas season and I take no 
notice to them at all. The thing that keeps buffoons energized is 
attention paid to them. If they were really serious about their 
so-called beliefs, they would leave the country during the Christmas 
season and go somewhere where it is not celebrated. 

My recommendation is the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean. 

Ignoring the holiday buffoons, I snuggle down and enjoy the Christmas
festivities. So much about the season to savor and enjoy. 

The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage has our home all decorated for
the Christmas season. In the evening, we sit down in the living room 
among all of the decorations, sip our hot cocoa and have a healthy 
slice of Christmas fruitcake. 

When it comes to decorating things, I don't even have a thumb. During
this time, I envy those who are all thumbs. My decorating expertise is 
simply to enjoy the work done. And that I do. 

I love everything about the Christmas season, except maybe shopping in
the mall. I think there should be some kind of a law restricting 
shopping in the mall. It is not that I hate going to the mall... well, 
I guess if I am truthful, I really do hate going to the mall. If they 
had a nice good used bookstore, I might see my way to the mall more 
often and deliberately. 

Apart from the mall, the Christmas season is a terrific time to be
alive. 

I love the Christmas trees. Go ahead and call it a "Holiday Tree" if you
do not mind letting other people know how stupid you really sound. 
Solomon, in the Old Testament, had some of these people in mind when he 
wrote, "Even a fool, when he holdeth his peace, is counted wise: and he 
that shutteth his lips is esteemed a man of understanding." (Proverbs 
17:28 KJV). If it is a "Holiday Tree," which holiday does it represent? 


I love all the decorations associated with this time of year. Throughout
the year, everything seems to be rather drab, but when Christmas comes 
along things begin to brighten up. 

I love all the stories associated with Christmas. Yes, I know some of
them are just stories made up; but every once in a while it is good to 
listen to a story. The fact that somebody has accused Santa's 
reindeer's of bullying poor little Rudolph only indicate that some 
people do not know the difference between fact and fiction. 

Do not let this get out, but, Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer does not
even exist. He is just a made-up character in a Christmas story. I know 
that will come as a shock to many people, but the truth is the truth no 
matter whom it hurts. 

I love the music of Christmas. Particularly, because 90% of the
Christmas music is religious. Go figure? Nothing is more inspiring than 
listening to a choir sing Handel's Messiah. Of course, there is a 
danger that the wrong people will get a hold of this great piece of 
music and want to change the title. I am looking for someone to protest 
this and insist we call it, "Handel's Person." 

The music of Christmas is uplifting and inspiring despite all the
naysayers that seem to come out of the ground during this time of the 
year. I wish they would stay underground and celebrate whatever they 
celebrate with Punxsutawney Phil. 

Dare I mention the food of Christmas? I'm going to anyway. The best
thing about the food at Christmas time is that nobody, and when I am 
talking about nobody, I am referring of course to my wife, says, "You 
shouldn't be eating that." The beauty of Christmas food is that you can 
eat it whenever and as much as you like. 

When I come back for my second slice of fruitcake and somebody looks at
me I always say, "I'm starting my diet next month." And I get away with 
it. 

Speaking of fruitcake, it is the best part of the Christmas food frenzy.
My biggest concern in this area is that the fruitcake has gotten a very 
bad rap by people who do not understand this delicacy. It is a very 
wonderful way for a person to get their daily portion of fruit. How 
nice of it to be mixed in with cake. After all, if the word "fruit," is 
associated with it, it must be good, right? Everybody knows fruit is 
good for a person. 

I take my portion of vegetables in carrot cake and my portion of fruit
in fruitcake. This is the cuisine of the gods. 

There is a very practical side to this fruitcake business. As I am
picking up my fifth slice of fruitcake, I begin thinking about the New 
Year and how I need to add more fruit to my diet. As I slowly chew on 
the fruitcake, every aspect of my being is energized with glorious 
delight and goodwill toward men. After a few slices of fruitcake, I am 
in such a good mood that even the "Holiday Tree" people do not bother 
me so much. Nothing comes between my fruitcake and me. 

Christmas is the season to rejoice in God's love for the world so much
that he sent his only son, Jesus Christ.
