Pinks & Blues Girls

Passionately written. Points well-taken.

As a Christian, I too have many struggles with this season... as it has come to pass.

I have no answers. As one person, I can only teach my grandchildren, as I did my own children, about religions and cultures different from their own. Knowledge is the key to respect.

The commercialization of Christmas is now a societal concern that must be met. "How" is, I suspect, up to each individual and family. Your words are a perfect place to start. Thank you...

Although Christmas is my favorite holiday, I can understand where you are coming from. I just try to enjoy the 'spirit' of the season and block out all the madness. We aren't Jewish or Christian, so we employ the 'live and let live' school of belief when it comes time to be respectful at the holidays.


Even as a Catholic, I can see your point. Even I get frustrated with how "commercial" the holiday has become. I also agree that there is no reason for it to start in October (or earlier)!
