Merry Christmas

I timed this post to be published at a few minutes past midnight, just in time for Christmas Day to begin (in my time zone, anyway).

I simply want to wish all of my fellow bloggers, whether Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Hindu, Buddhist, pagan, atheist, agnostic, sectarian, nonsectarian, liberal, conservative, Democrat, or Republican, a very merry (or happy) Christmas.

I sincerely hope that each and every one of you has a wonderful day shared with family and close friends.

    I don’t celebrate Christmas for a lot of reasons, and Biblical scholars are split between Christ having been born either in the fall near the festival of Sukkot (festival of booths) or in the spring near Pesach (Passover). All that said, there’s nothing wrong with tradition, and if Christmas can be our tradition of putting our differences aside and treating each other with kindness, then it’s good thing. Merry Christmas.

    Likewise. If indeed there is a god — in us or around us or above us — it is one god, no matter how divided, or how much dogma surrounds it. For any “modern” religious holiday — in any faith — it stands on a former “pagan” (not currently in favor) religion. This is true of all faiths, including some very old ones. But in the world of faith, 6,000 years is not all that old.

    So all things are one thing and if anything really is, it is all part of the same thing. Merry everything for everyone!
