The “Reason For The Season”

Christians, if you’re exhausted by Christmas preparations, determined to “save” the day marking the birth of Jesus from the pagan grip of the dominate culture, and find yourself juggling boxes and bags full of expensive gifts for your family and friends — and for your kids, whom you’ve taught to make a list for “Santa” so they’ll feel entitled to expect everything they want and then grumble when they don’t get it — as you go into debt from which you don’t recover until the month before Christmas next year, let’s be clear.

Don’t expect me to take you seriously, much less respond kindly, when I see your “Jesus Is The Reason For The Season” sweater, pin, or bumpersticker.

OK?
