« This holiday season, celebrate boundaries | Main | Pillsbury kneads you »



I will admit - I'm a fan of Christmas - but not to the Exclusion of Easter. I think the two holidays are intertwined - and neither is any good without the other.

I once talked my church pastor into opening Easter Sunday service with "Oh Come All Ye Faithful" because the Christmas/Easter festival cycle takes us from the cradle to the cross - and includes all the mystery (Strange messages from angels - who visit Joseph, Mary, and shepherds with news that's difficult to believe), intrigue (A king who can't pick on someone his own size, and orders the deaths of all babies under two..., suspense (A flight to Egypt - a miracle at a wedding - more miracles - and a traitor at the table), injustice (releasing a known terrorist in Barabbas), violence and hope(The death of innocence - and the birth of redemption) that create a good epic story... Don't you think?


>I think the two holidays are intertwined - and neither is any good without the other.

Yes! The alpha and omega of Christ's life, so to speak.


Exactly! So Joy to the world - all the boys and girls - joy to the fishes and the deep blue sea - joy to you and me.... (I quote this whenever I can)
