Happy Christmas! all my Christian friends!

...and for all my Pagan ones, may Dionysus and Apollo BOTH be with you throughout the New Year!

h/t - Geeez for the wonderful graphic that so aptly expresses both sentiments.

and for those of a more "secular/philosophical vein"...

You do like to make it difficult for everyone, don't you? ;)

Merry Christmas!

Of course, life IS difficult.

And Thank You. Happy Christmas to you, as well!

Merry Christmas!

BTW, we have blue-white lights on our house this year -- for the first time.

Got the blues since November. Heh.

VERY appropriate! Merry Christmas, AoW!

May the merry and bright aspects of Christmas -- if there are an left -- remain with you throughout the New year and beyond.

PS: I like all blue outdoor lights. My father thought they were depressing. I always thought they looked calm, soothing and reassuring -- especially after a snowfall.

For whatever it may matter, I prefer smaller, subtler, more modest, intimate Christmas displays than the extravagant, highly competitive Amusement Park style seen today, but, Chacun a son gout.

They will anyway, no matter what i may think. At least I've learned THAT much in 72 years.

Not very impressive, is it? ;-s

Have a good one, whatever it mayturn out to be.

Thank you, FT.

And I look for and appreciate "Love" and "Grace" not only at Christmas time, but throughout the year.

No, I am not a Christian any more, but I do still love and appreciate all the symbolism behind the rituals.

And I'm with you when it comes to the public displays, as I also appreciate that "less" is sometimes "more".

You're a very wise man, FT. You've got 17 years on me, and I respect that.

Have a Happy New Year!

AMEN to that!
