We Wish You A Merry...

12.25.2013



I spent many years being a very devoted Catholic. Then I spent a few years exploring new religions and beliefs. I no longer have a standard religion and have lost much of my faith in most ordinary beliefs. But I still respect all those who follow their religion with all their hearts and souls. Following a religion is so very difficult -even though we may want to pretend it is easy, it is not. It's only easy if you only follow the parts that are convenient. 

This week I a blog post with this awesome quote from Dr. Seuss: 

"What if Christmas, he thought, doesn't come from a store. What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more."

A truly perfect phrase to make those who believe in Christmas, reflect on what exactly they believe in and what exactly they have been celebrating on Dec. 25th. 

Happy Holidays! :)

  1. I grew up Southern baptist and in university I reverted to Islam. I met my husband a few years later and the rest is history. But, it is hard bc in Islam it is not allowed to celebrate anything (even birthdays) and as an American you know how we love to celebrate holidays and it's tradition.

  2. Happy you liked it. :)

    I'm very similar to you, grew up Catholic then went through a phase (thanks to my mom) exploring many religions. Hypocrisy and politics left a bad taste in my mouth. I totally respect a persons right to their individual beliefs and respect them even more if they practice what they preach - personally, organized religion isn't for me.

    In regards to Christmas, it would be nice if it was less about the shopping/ sales/ rat race and more about selflessness and togetherness.

    1. You nailed it! It would be nice if people could get over the marketing/sales side of Christmas...
