    When it inevitably shows up on TV it will fit right in with the rest of the Christmas standards.

    •  Re Christmas Standards, (0+ / 0-)

      Edna St. Vincent Millay wrote this poem, titled To Jesus on His Birthday:

      "For this your mother sweated in the cold,
      For this you bled upon the bitter tree--
      A yard of tinsel ribbon bought and sold;
      A paper wreath;
      A day at home for me."

      I think of the poem everytime I see or hear some smarmy feel-good Christmas program.
      IMHO the Christian RW seems to be unfortunately fond of Christmas sentimentalism.
