    But from a christian family. The iconography is inexcapable, and I must admit to enjoying it just a little. I have noticed that while jewelry ads are still on, advertisers have cut back on the use of christmas carols in the public domain*. This is a good thing because having them on blast for all these many years made me hate every last one of them. so, progress.

    *I realize that moochers take free stuff, but I am not giving corporations credit. Corporations are the only ones who pay for music.

    You can trust me to be objective, I've been attacked by both sides.

      When my parents were disappointed that none of their four children practiced the religion I would remind them what a good job they did teaching us to think for ourselves.  They had no retort.

      I never used to mind Christmas.  Once it started appearing in September, I began to loathe it, and still do.

      being mindful and keepin' it real

      "The Little Drummer Boy" again, it will be too soon. I like the traditional carols and everything else, mostly. But that one just gets to me. ;-)
