A collection of thoughts and going-ons in my life.

Here's an interesting article about Christmas. I knew that Christmas today is a heap of commercialization piled on mostly pagan roots. But what I thought I had known before this article is that a century ago, Christmas just wasn't a big deal for Christians. It was mostly a non-event. But the article makes the point that it wasn't a non-event. Most protestant denominations actively fought against observing Christmas. Interesting.
